Poem by William Wordsworth

Inscription Intended for a Stone in the Grounds of Rydal Mount

IN these fair vales hath many a tree
At Wordsworths suit been spared;
And from the builders hand this stone,
For some rude beauty of its own,
Was rescued by the bard:
So let it rest; and time will come
When here the tender-hearted
May heave a gentle sigh for him,
As one of the departed.
