I’ve just completed a short introductory course with Lancaster university about the poet, William Wordsworth.
The following is an extract from one of my favourite poems of his:
“…Books! ’tis a dull and endless strife:
Come, hear the woodland linnet,
How sweet his music! on my life,
There’s more of wisdom in it….
….Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.
She has a world of ready wealth,
Our minds and hearts to bless.
Spontaneous wisdom breathed by health,
Truth breathed by cheerfulness….
…..Sweet is the lore which Nature brings….
Come forth, and bring with you a heart
That watches and receives.”
The Tables Turned by William Wordsworth
Nature is truly an amazing teacher, as well as being a marvellous tonic for body, mind and spirit.
