A poem that is a classical Wadsworth in all of its grandeur. Nature is the main focal point of write. Yet there is a sense of peace that surrounds it. Great write.

..............this is a place I wish to visit in the spring.....to see the shepherds and their dog, with their flocks of sheep.... and a mountain cottage with a little stream running nearby.....to breathe the fresh air on a warm day in april....and listen to stories under a sky of blue with big cumulus clouds floating by....oh this would be a dream....
