William Wordsworth (Уильям Вордсворт)


The Kirk of Ulpha


THE KIRK of Ulpha to the pilgrim’s eye
Is welcome as a star, that doth present
Its shining forehead through the peaceful rent
Of a black cloud diffused o’er half the sky:
Or as a fruitful palm-tree towering high
O’er the parched waste beside an Arab’s tent;
Or the Indian tree whose branches, downward bent,
Take root again, a boundless canopy.
How sweet were leisure! could it yield no more
Than ’mid that wave-washed Churchyard to recline,
From pastoral graves extracting thoughts divine;
Or there to pace, and mark the summits hoar
Of distant moonlit mountains faintly shine,
Soothed by the unseen River’s gentle roar.



William Wordsworth's other poems:
  1. Monastery of Old Bangor
  2. Miserrimus
  3. Hart-Leap Well
  4. Inscription Intended for a Stone in the Grounds of Rydal Mount
  5. Mary Queen of Scots
