She dwelt among the untrodden ways
        Beside the springs of Dove,
A Maid whom there were none to praise
        And very few to love:

A violet by a mossy stone
        Half hidden from the eye!
- Fair as a star, when only one
        Is shining in the sky.

She lived unknown, and few could know
        When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
        The difference to me!

- William Wordsworth, 1799.
