The Rivulet, delighting in its strength,
Ran with a young man's speed; and yet the voice

    The Stream, so ardent in its course before,
    Sent forth such sallies of glad sound, that all
    Which I till then had heard, appeared the voice
    Of common pleasure: beast and bird, the lamb,

    Sent forth such sallies of glad sound, that all the power of words when they are strung together never ceases to amaze.. (Report) Reply

    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....

    Woolly romanticism. Give me a poet with a brain as well as a heart! (Report) Reply

    Gives an entire new meaning to the traditional view of Wordsworth as a nature lover, all those negative ions from the water and vibrant nature exciting his brain cells and raising the sap. Wordsworth never married his French lover, the two timer, that bore him a daughter in France did he? An intriguing poem, dedicated to a woman and a place of meeting, that made a deep impression upon him. A self dedication to the young man that ran and his Emma that received him so willingly with an moralized love. (Report) Reply

    This will be treated as a nonsense by the author of 'The Devil Wears Prada'. Wordsworth, had you been working in a modern bank, then how would you compose all this or an editor of Vogue with your office in Manhattan or firther more your house being drowned in the stream in torrential rain.

    A joyfully flowing brook or stream passing through beautiful natural surroundings of green vegetation, sheep and shepherds and becoming falls and going on with a cottage on hill top Wordsworth surreys like Milton of L'allegro and Fancy of Keats to dedicate it to his Emma. It's a free flowing poem of his out put of joy in Nature that has no bound indeed making the readers also participate with him to enjoy vicarious pleasure I too have enjoyed very much!
