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.
One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man,
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the ages can.

Huge and mighty forms, that do not live
Like living men, moved slowly through the mind
By day, and were a trouble to my dreams.
Behold her, single in the field,
Yon solitary Highland lass!
Through the turnings intricate of verse,
Present themselves as objects recognised,
In flashes, and with glory not their own.
Will no one tell me what she sings?-
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
For old, unhappy, far-off things
And battles long ago.
