Poetry Sunday: Lines Written in Early Spring
Spring may be the season which most appeals to poets. They've certainly had a lot to say about it in many different ways.
Surely one of the poets most associated with poems about spring is William Wordsworth and one of his most famous poems on the subject is this one. It finds the poet in a pleasant woodland grove, enjoying the birds' songs and the spring flowers, but all this beauty prompts somber thoughts of what a mess humans have made of things. It was written in April 1798, but it might have been written today.
