Dove Cottage Garden

Dove Cottage Garden
Sweet garden-orchard! of all spots that are
The loveliest surely man hath ever found.
Farewell! we leave thee to heaven's peaceful care.
Thee and the cottage which thou dost surround ...

Dear spot! whom we have watched with tender heed,
Bringing thee chosen plants and blossoms blown
Among the distant mountains, flower and weed
Which thou hast taken to thee as thy own ...

O happy garden! loved for hours of sleep,
O quiet garden! loved for waking hours.
For soft half-slumbers that did gently steep
Our spirits, carrying with them dreams of flowers ...

William Wordsworth - written just before William and his sister Dorothy were going to leave Dove Cottage for a few months.

My great great grandparents were caretakers for the cottage and lived right across the street from it! So beautiful, your pictures make me homesick for my ancestral stomping grounds!
