Written while Sailing in a Boat at Evening

wordsworth

William Wordsworth

          HOW richly glows the water's breast

          Before us, tinged with evening hues,

          While, facing thus the crimson west,

          The boat her silent course pursues!

          And see how dark the backward stream!

          A little moment past so smiling!

          And still, perhaps, with faithless gleam,

          Some other loiterers beguiling.

          Such views the youthful Bard allure;

          But, heedless of the following gloom,                       10

          He deems their colours shall endure

          Till peace go with him to the tomb.

          --And let him nurse his fond deceit,

          And what if he must die in sorrow!

          Who would not cherish dreams so sweet,

          Though grief and pain may come to-morrow?

                                                              1789.
