    For a 19th century poet, Wordworth wrote wonderfully modern sounding verse. His 'The Prelude' is a monumental work, which I am always reading. -LP

    The real master of poetry, his poem about Daffodil's was the first poem i loved as a kid.

    When life does as life does, Wordsworth had the gift to place it all in succinct prespective.

Stanzas

WITHIN our happy castle there dwelt One
Whom without blame I may not overlook;
For never sun on living creature shone
Who more devout enjoyment with us took:
Here on his hours he hung as on a book,
On his own time here would he float away,
As doth a fly upon a summer brook;
But go tomorrow, or belike today,
Seek for him,---he is fled; and whither none can say.

[Hata Bildir]
