    Simple innocence.
    Simply evergreen.
    The simplest things in nature last the longest.
    So is this poem.
    What a great poem.
    Wordsworth's poems are worth the word.

    Come on, poem hunters! Let's not forget the classics. This poem is light, bouyant; that is, until you smack into 'The Child is father of the Man.' A great line that my seventh and eighth graders have fun with. (Report)Reply
