Let the delightful words of this beautiful poem,
charm and inspire your busy day.


--Description: 19th C, Wordsworth W., Seasons, Nature--


The cock is crowing,
The stream is flowing,
The small birds twitter,
The lake doth glitter
The green field sleeps in the sun;
The oldest and youngest
Are at work with the strongest;
The cattle are grazing,
Their heads never raising;
There are forty feeding like one!

Like an army defeated
The snow hath retreated,
And now doth fare ill
On the top of the bare hill;
The plowboy is whooping—anon-anon:
There's joy in the mountains;
There's life in the fountains;
Small clouds are sailing,
Blue sky prevailing;
The rain is over and gone!

William Wordsworth

Wordsworth, Coleridge and Southey came to be known as the "Lake Poets".[8] Through this period, many of his poems revolve around themes of death, endurance, separation and grief.

--Quote of the Day: Youth is like spring, an over-praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.
(Samuel Butler)
