A THOUGHT SUGGESTED BY A VIEW, OF SADDLEBACK IN CUMBERLAND, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: On stern blencathra's perilous height
Last Line: The things that seek the earth, how full of noise and riot!
Subject(s): Mountains; Saddleback (mountain), England; Hills; Downs (great Britain)


On stern Blencartha's perilous height
The winds are tyrannous and strong;
And flashing forth unsteady light
From stern Blencartha's skiey height,
As loud the torrents throng!
Beneath the moon, in gentle weather,
They bind the earth and sky together.
But oh! the sky and all its forms, how quiet! --
The things that seek the earth, how full of noise and riot!
