"This city now ..." Quote of William Wordsworth

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

This city now doth, like a garment, wear The beauty of the morning; silent bare, Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples lie Open unto the fields and to the sky; All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.

William Wordsworth
