Francis T. Palgrave, ed. (1824–1897). The Golden Treasury.  1875.
 
W. Wordsworth
 
CCLXIX. The Inner Vision
 
MOST sweet it is with unuplifted eyes 
  To pace the ground, if path there be or none, 
While a fair region round the traveller lies 
  Which he forbears again to look upon; 
Pleased rather with some soft ideal scene,         5
  The work of Fancy, or some happy tone 
Of meditation, slipping in between 
  The beauty coming and the beauty gone. 
—If Thought and Love desert us, from that day 
  Let us break off all commerce with the Muse:  10
With Thought and Love companions of our way— 
  Whate'er the senses take or may refuse,— 
  The Mind's internal heaven shall shed her dews 
Of inspiration on the humblest lay.
