Passage

She dwelt among the untrodden ways

Beside the springs of Dove;

A maid whom there were none to praise

And very few to love.

A violet by a mossy stone

Half-hidden from the eye!

Fair as a star, when only one

Is shining in the Sky.

She lived unknown and few could know

When she ceased to be;

But she in her grave and, on,

The difference to me.

– William Wordsworth

Passage

Into the sunshine,

Full of the light,

Leaping and flashing

From morn till night!

Into the moonlight,

Whiter than snow,

Waving so flower-like

When the winds blow!

Ever in motion,

Blithesome and cherry,

Still climbing heavenward,

Never aweary;

Glad of all weathers,

Still seeming best,

Upward or downward

Motion thy rest,

Full of nature

Nothing can tame,

changed every moment,

Ever the same;

Ceaseless aspiring

Ceaseless content,

Darkness or sunshine

Thy element;

Glorious fountain!

Let my heart be

Fresh, changeful, constant,

Upward like thee!

– James Russell Lowell

Passage

The Solitary Reaper

Behold her, single in the field,

You solitary Highland lass!

Reaping and singing by herself;

Stop here or gently pass!

Alone she cuts and binds the grain,

And sings a melancholy strain

O listen! for the vale profound

Is over flowing with the sound.

No nightingale did ever chant

More welcome notes to weary bands

Of travellers in some shady haunt

Among Arabian sands.

– William Wordsworth
