Intimations of Immortality

A short extract from William Wordsworth’s ‘Ode: Intimations of Immortality’ about finding strength through grief.

Intimations of Immortality

What though the radiance which was once so bright

Be now forever taken from my sight,

Though nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendour in the grass, of glory in the flower;

We will grieve not, rather find

Strength in what remains behind.
