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.
Thou unassuming common-place
Of Nature, with that homely face.

Oft on the dappled turf at ease
I sit, and play with similes,
Loose types of things through all degrees.
Pleasures newly found are sweet
When they lie about our feet.
To be a prodigal's favourite - then, worse truth,
A miser's pensioner - behold our lot!
O man, that from thy fair and shining youth
Age might but take the things youth needed not!
There's not a nook within this solemn pass
But were an apt confessional for one
Taught by his summer spent, his autumn gone,
That life is but a tale of morning grass
Withered at eve.
