From ‘The Excursion’

A short extract from ‘The Excursion’ by Romantic poet William Wordsworth, about memories lasting long after death.

From ‘The Excursion’

And when the stream that overflows has passed,

A consciousness remains upon the silent shore of memory;

Images and precious thoughts that shall not be

And cannot be destroyed.
