Poem by William Wordsworth
CHATSWORTH! thy stately mansion, and the pride Of thy domain, strange contrast do present To house and home in many a craggy rent Of the wild Peak; where new-born waters glide Through fields whose thrifty occupants abide As in a dear and chosen banishment, With every semblance of entire content; So kind is simple Nature, fairly tried! Yet he whose heart in childhood gave her troth To pastoral dales, thin set with modest farms, May learn, if judgment strengthen with his growth, That not for Fancy only pomp hath charms; And, strenuous to protect from lawless harms The extremes of favored life, may honor both.
