Markings 155

July 4, 2018

'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. Once again I see
These hedge-rows, hardly hedge-rows, 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!'

 

from Tintern Abbey by William Wordsworth

Composed a few miles above Tintern Abbey,

on revisiting the Banks of the Wye during a

tour. July 13, 1798

 

 Lake District - North West England
