William Wordsworth Poems

wordsworth

The day is come when I again repose Here, under this dark sycamore, and view These plots of cottage-ground, these orchard-tufts, Which at this season, with their unripe fruits, Are clad in one green hue, and lose themselves 'Mid groves and copses. Some silent laws our hearts may make, Which they shall long obey; We for the year to come may take Our temper from to-day. The Prelude is critically central to his life work because it contains passages representing all three styles. Oft-times I thought to run away; For me it was a woeful day. Ye blessèd creatures, I have heard the call Ye to each other make; I see The heavens laugh with you in your jubilee; My heart is at your festival, My head hath its coronal, The fulness of your bliss, I feel—I feel it all. Nor wilt thou then forget, That after many wanderings, many years Of absence, these steep woods and lofty cliffs, And this green pastoral landscape, were to me More dear, both for themselves and for thy sake! This line has been attributed to the slander that Milton and his fellow republicans faced for their radical political ideas after the Stuart Restoration in mid-17th-century Britain.

Tintern Abbey

wordsworth

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come From God, who is our home: Heaven lies about us in our infancy! My pride was tamed, and in our grief, I of the parish ask'd relief. —But there's a tree, of many, one, A single field which I have look'd upon, Both of them speak of something that is gone: The pansy at my feet Doth the same tale repeat: Whither is fled the visionary gleam? Once again I see These hedgerows, hardly hedgerows, little lines Of sportive wood run wild; these pastoral farms, Green to the very door; and wreaths of smoke Sent up, in silence, from among the trees! × Nature never did betray. One impulse from a vernal wood May teach you more of man, Of moral evil and of good, Than all the sages can. Legacy William Wordsworth was the central figure in the English Romantic revolution in poetry. Wordsworth succeeded his friend as in 1843 and held that post until his own death in 1850.

Poem Summary

wordsworth

To wicked deeds I was inclined, And wicked fancies cross'd my mind, And every man I chanc'd to see, I thought he knew some ill of me.

Rzepka contests that the economy was actually improving during these years, which accounts for the lack of records of homeless workers, and lack of records of beggars or vagrants in any of the 16 travel accounts written between 1770 Gilpin's visit and 1798 Wordsworth's visit Rzepka 14. These beauteous forms, Through a long absence, have not been to me As is a landscape to a blind man's eye; But oft, in lonely rooms, and 'mid the din Of towns and cities, I have owed to them, In hours of weariness, sensations sweet, Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart; And passing even into my purer mind With tranquil restoration—feelings too Of unremembered pleasure; such, perhaps, As have no slight or trivial influence On that best portion of a good man's life, His little, nameless, unremembered, acts Of kindness and of love. As he tells the reader repeatedly, his purpose was threefold: to provide a reexamination of his qualifications, to honor Coleridge, and to create an introduction to The Recluse.

William Wordsworth (Author of Lyrical Ballads)

wordsworth

Not harsh nor grating, though of ample power 207 To chasten and subdue. Nor less, I trust, To them I may have owed another gift, Of aspect more sublime; that blessed mood, In which the burthen of the mystery, In which the heavy and the weary weight Of all this unintelligible world, Is lightened—that serene and blessed mood, In which the affections gently lead us on— Until, the breath of this corporeal frame And even the motion of our human blood Almost suspended, we are laid asleep In body, and become a living soul; While with an eye made quiet by the power Of harmony, and the deep power of joy, We see into the life of things. This is a lonesome place for one like you. Wordsworth continued to hold back from publication The Prelude, Home at Grasmere, The Borderers, and Salisbury Plain.
