ON WORDSWORTH, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: He lived amidst the untrodden ways
Last Line: The difference to him!
Alternate Author Name(s): Coleridge, Hartley
Variant Title(s): Wordsworth Unvisited
Subject(s): Poetry & Poets; Wordsworth, William (1770-1850)

He lived amidst the untrodden ways
To Rydal Lake that lead;
A bard whom there were none to praise,
And very few to read.
Behind a cloud his mystic sense,
Deep hidden, who can spy?
Bright as the night when not a star
Is shining in the sky.
Unread his works --his "Milk White Doe'
With dust is dark and dim;
It's still in Longman's shop, and oh!
The difference to him!
