“RETROSPECT–LOVE OF NATURE LEADING TO LOVE OF MAN

[…]

With deep devotion, Nature, did I feel,

In that enormous City’s turbulent world

Of men and things, what benefit I owed

To thee, and those domains of rural peace,

Where to the sense of beauty first my heart

Was opened; tract more exquisitely fair

Than that famed paradise of ten thousand trees[.]”

-William Wordsworth, The Prelude
