A Complaint

There is a change--and I am poor;
Your love hath been, nor long ago,
A fountain at my fond heart's door,
Whose only business was to flow;
And flow it did; not taking heed
Of its own bounty, or my need.

What happy moments did I count!
Blest was I then all bliss above!
Now, for that consecrated fount
Of murmuring, sparkling, living love,
What have I? Shall I dare to tell?
A comfortless and hidden well.

A well of love--it may be deep--
I trust it is,--and never dry:
What matter? If the waters sleep
In silence and obscurity.
--Such change, and at the very door
Of my fond heart, hath made me poor.
William Wordsworth
Giorgia King
William Wordsworth was born on April 7, 1770 in England. When he was eight years old, his mother died and he went to Hawkshead Grammar School. While he was there, his father died leaving him and his four siblings. He then went to John's College and in his final semester he went on a walking tour of Europe through the French Revolution. He then met Samuel Taylor Coleridge and together they wrote "Lyrical Ballards" which was the most influential piece in Western history. William then died on April 23, 1850.
