William Wordsworth
(1770-1850) born on
Apr 07
English poet. His "Lyrical Ballads," 1798 are noted for their worship of nature and humanitarianism; poet laureate, 1843-50.
Think you, 'mid all this mighty sum
Of things forever speaking.
That nothing of itself will come,
But we must still be seeking?

A reasoning, self-sufficing thing,
An intellectual all-in-all.
The light that never was, on sea or land,
The consecration, and the poet's dream.
Not choice
But habit rules the unreflective herd.
And I could wish my days to be Bound each to each by natural piety.
