Yesterday, on April 7th, William Wordsworth celebrated its 250th anniversary…

We honor this event with seven of our favorite poems by William Wordsworth …

William Wordsworth (April 7, 1770 – April 23, 1850) was an English romantic poet who, with Samuel Taylor Coleridge's co-publication Lyrical Ballads (1798), helped to introduce romanticism into English literature. Wordsworth was the British poet laureate from 1843 until his death from pleurisy on April 23, 1850 (via Wikipedia).

in early spring
William Wordsworth

I heard a thousand mixed notes
I sat back in a grove.
In this sweet mood with pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to your mind.

Nature connected to her beautiful works
The human soul that ran through me;
And it made my heart very sad to think
What man made of man.

Through tufts of primrose in this green arbor,
The evergreen followed its wreaths;
And I believe that every flower
Enjoy the air it breathes.

The birds around me hopped and played,
I can't measure your thoughts:
But the slightest movement they made
It seemed to be a thrill.

The budding branches spread their fan,
Catch the airy air;
And I have to think, do everything I can
That there was pleasure there.

When this belief is sent from heaven
If this is nature’s sacred plan,
Do I have no reason to complain?
Which man made man?
