Excerpt from Poems by William Wordsworth

Here are places with so distinct and finished a character of their own, and so hallowed by their association with persons who have been great in the worlds of thought and feeling, that both intellect and imagination select them to cherish in the inward life, to impersonate them as friends, and to enjoy their company at will.

They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude.

Grasmere is such a place to those who love it. Its landscape, even in remembrance, restores our heart to peace; and in the midst of its valley lies the little dwelling-place of Wordsworth which held of old, and to-day radiates, those human associations which are needed to give to the beauty and solemnity of nature their crowning sentiment and charm.
