I travelled among unknown men
by William Wordsworth
I travelled among unknown men,In lands beyond the sea;
Nor, England! did I know till then
What love I bore to thee.
'Tis past, that melancholy dream!Nor will I quit thy shore
A second time; for still I seem
To love thee more and more.
Among they mountains did I feelThe joy of my desire;
And she I cherished turned her wheel
Beside an English fire.
Thy mornings showed, they nights concealed,The bowers where Lucy played;
And thine too is the last green field
That Lucy's eyes surveyed.
