Another wee tale from Afternoon Delight, although it is almost evening


 AFTERNOON DELIGHT

This ancient little verse was written by William Wordsworth as he sat on the beach in Calais, in the Autumn of 1802.  The afternoon sun was fading and the evening clouds gathered around them as they walk together in sweet tranquility.

Beach at
even-time

IT IS A BEAUTIFUL EVENING.

It is a beauteous evening, calm and free,
The holy time is quiet as a nun
Breathless with adoration: the broad sun
is sinking  down in its tranquillity;
The gentleness of heaven broods o'er the sea :
Listen ! the mighty being is awake,
And does with his enernal motion make
A sound like thunder - everlastingly.
Dear child ! dear girl ! thou walkest with me here,
If thou appear untouched by solomn thought,
Thy nature is not therefore less divine :
Thou liest in Abraham's  bosom all the year ;
And worshipp'st at the Temple's inner shrine,
God being with thee when we know it not.
William
Wordsworth


I do love this little sonnet by Wordsworth.
Most of his works were so terribly long and not really adaptable for a website such as this.
I do have a few small books, as in, Elves and Icicles and of course the Peppercorn Green books with the Googlenok's but that's it.
