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.
Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
But to be young was very heaven!

Not Chaos, not
The darkest pit of lowest Erebus,
Nor aught of blinder vacancy, scooped out
By help of dreams -- can breed such fear and awe
As fall upon us often when we look
Into our Minds, into the Mind of Man.
A voice so thrilling ne'er was heard
In spring-time from the cuckoo-bird,
Breaking the silence of the seas
Among the farthest Hebrides.
Spirits overwrought
Were making night do penance for a day
Spent in a round of strenuous idleness.
Still glides the stream, and shall for ever glide;
The form remains, the function never dies.
