Beautiful set of Wordsworth's poems, organized thematically, including the whole of The Prelude and The Excursion, and shorter works including "Tintern Abbey," "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," "The World Is Too Much With Us," and "Ode: Intimations of Immortality": "What though the radiance which was once so bright / Be now forever taken from my sight, / Though nothing can bring back the hour / Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower; / We will grieve not, rather find / Strength in what remains behind."
