Lucy (A slumber did my spirit seal...)
V. A slumber did my spirit seal ...
by William Wordsworth
A slumber did my spirit seal;
I had no human fears:
She seemed a thing that could not feel
The touch of earthly years.
No motion has she now, no force;
She neither hears nor sees;
Rolled round in earth's diurnal course,
With rocks, and stones, and trees.
Notes to the poem:
Written in Germany in 1799.
First published in 1800.
