William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

Things to Consider:

Homework Questions:
TOUSSAINT, the most unhappy man of men!
Whether the whistling Rustic tend his plough
Within thy hearing, or thy head be now
Pillowed in some deep dungeon's earless den;--
O miserable Chieftain! where and when
Wilt thou find patience? Yet die not; do thou
Wear rather in thy bonds a cheerful brow:
Though fallen thyself, never to rise again,
 Live, and take comfort. Thou hast left behind
Powers that will work for thee; air, earth, and skies;      10
There's not a breathing of the common wind
That will forget thee; thou hast great allies;
 Thy friends are exultations, agonies,
 And love, and man's unconquerable mind.
"I Wandered Lonely as A Cloud" 
See silly videos  "My Heart Leaps Up"
My heart leaps up when I behold
    A Rainbow in the sky.
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a Man;
So be it when I shall grow old
    Or let me die!
The Child is Father of the Man;
And I should hope my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.
