To Wordsworth

Portrait by Benjamin Robert Haydon

O, tell me who did lay the first brick
To the dome higher than glamorous peak,
Whose charms and power do aloft mountains soar,
Who sang like the skylark ‘pon heaven’s crest!



Mona Lisa

Painting by Leonardo Da Vinci from

AND out of ages, the greatest of all be
A star that lasts, the man who named thee fair,
And hailed be a mind that constructed thee,
The pose, and all the beauty beyond compare.
