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
quiet of the sky"
William Wordsworth - "Lines Composed a few Miles above Tintern Abbey"
