“I Travelled Among Unknown Men” by William Wordsworth

I travelled among unknown men, 

In lands beyond the sea; 

Nor, England! did I know till then 

What love I bore to thee. 

‘Tis past, that melancholy dream! 

Nor will I quit thy shore 

A second time; for still I seem 

To love thee more and more. 

Among thy mountains did I feel 

The joy of my desire; 

And she I cherished turned her wheel 

Beside an English fire. 

Thy mornings showed, thy nights concealed, 

The bowers where Lucy played; 

And thine too is the last green field 

That Lucy’s eyes surveyed.
