Poem by William Wordsworth
The Reverie of Poor Susan AT the corner of Wood Street, when daylight appears, Hangs a thrush that sings loud,Чit has sung for three years; Poor Susan has passed by the spot, and has heard In the silence of morning the song of the bird. ТT is a note of enchantment; what ails her? She sees A mountain ascending, a vision of trees; Bright volumes of vapor through Lothbury glide, And a river flows on through the vale of Cheapside. Green pastures she views in the midst of the dale, Down which she so often has tripped with her pail; And a single small cottage, a nest like a doveТs, The one only dwelling on earth that she loves. She looks, and her heart is in heaven; but they fade, The mist and the river, the hill and the shade: The stream will not flow, and the hill will not rise, And the colors have all passed away from her eyes!
