Tintern Abbey, Early Evening - Oil painting by Michael Strang

"Five years have passed;

five long summers with the length of five long winters!

and again I hear these waters,

rolling from their mountain springs

With a soft inland murmur,

     Once again do I behold those steep and lofty cliffs,

That on a wild secluded scene impress

thoughts of more deep seclusion;

and connects the landscape

with the quiet of the sky"

William Wordsworth - "Lines Composed a few Miles above Tintern Abbey"
