Poem of the day

Samuel Taylor Coleridge Poem
Fears In Solitude
 by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Written in April 1798, during the alarm of an invasion

A green and silent spot, amid the hills,

No singing skylark ever poised himself.
The hills are heathy, save that swelling slope,
Which hath a gay and gorgeous covering on,
All golden with the never-bloomless furze,
...
