    We poets in our youth begin in gladness;
    But thereof comes in the end despondency and madness.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)

    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 (1770–1850)
