blank verse but STALE was in The Nightingale by W. Wordsworth (Written in April,1798) ! ! ! ! ! no! there was no stale or rotten verse! ! ! ! but full of joy for nature- And hark! the Nightingale begins its song Most musical, most melancholy [4] Bird! A melancholy Bird? O idle thought! In nature there is nothing melancholy. yeah in nature there is nothing melancholy or dejection..................
