William Wordsworth Quote
There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, The earth, and every common sight, To me did seem Appareled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. It is not now as it hath been of yore — Turn wheresoe'er I may, By night or day, The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
Ode. Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood (1807), st. 1
