1770 ~ 1850
"Though nothing can bring back the hour
Of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower;
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind. "
— William Wordsworth
Yesterday Clint was finally able, after us purchasing two bookcases, to empty more boxes of his books. He ran across a few old English textbooks that he didn't want. I can't just throw away a book, I found the illustration of Wordsworth in it and thought I could use it. The recent reading of Wordsworth's verse on Face Book plus the picture I found yesterday of him in the over a hundred-year-old-book equaled a blog about something I love!
The 1961 movie starring Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty.
|An old torn quote with the verse I found in a 1930s woman's|
magazine. I cut it out and glued this in my
not-so-little black book.
To this day, it is difficult to watch the scene that made
such an impression on me those many years ago
when I first saw the movie.
