THE SHEPHERD, LOOKING EASTWARD, SOFTLY SAID POEM BY WILLIAM WORDSWORTH

Deal Score0

The Shepherd, looking eastward, softly said,
“Bright is thy veil, O Moon, as thou art bright!”
Forthwith, that little cloud, in ether spread
And penetrated all with tender light,
She cast away, and showed her fulgent head
Uncovered; dazzling the Beholder’s sight
As if to vindicate her beauty’s right
Her beauty thoughtlessly disparaged.
Meanwhile that veil, removed or thrown aside,
Went floating from her, darkening as it went;
And a huge mass, to bury or to hide,
Approached this glory of the firmament;
Who meekly yields, and is obscured–content
With one calm triumph of a modest pride.
