"My ears began to open to the charm
Of words in tuneful order, found them sweet
For their own sakes, a passion and a power:
And phrases pleas'd me, chosen for delight,
For pomp, or love."  William Wordsworth

"An early worshipper at Nature's shrine,
I loved her rudest scenes--warrens, and heaths,
And yellow commons, and birch-shaded hollows,
And hedge rows, bordering unfrequented lanes . . ."  Charlotte Smith
