Elizabeth Barrett Browning (Элизабет Барретт Браунинг)


On a Portrait of Wordsworth


WORDSWORTH upon Helvellyn ! Let the cloud
Ebb audibly along the mountain-wind,
Then break against the rock, and show behind
The lowland valleys floating up to crowd
The sense with beauty. He with forehead bowed
And humble-lidded eyes, as one inclined
Before the sovran thought of his own mind,
And very meek with inspirations proud,
Takes here his rightful place as poet-priest
By the high altar, singing prayer and prayer

To the higher Heavens. A noble vision free
Our Haydon's hand has flung out from the mist:
No portrait this, with Academic air !
This is the poet and his poetry.

  3. Sonnets from the Portuguese. 30. I see thine image through my tears to-night
  4. Sonnets from the Portuguese. 35. If I leave all for thee, wilt thou exchange
