SHE DWELT AMONG THE UNTRODDEN WAYS
by: William Wordsworth
- HE among the untrodden ways
- Beside the springs of Dove,
- A Maid whom there were none to praise
- And very few to love:
- A violet by a mossy stone
- Half hidden from the eye!
- --Fair as a star, when only one
- Is shining in the sky.
- She lived unknown, and few could know
- When Lucy ceased to be;
- But she is in her grave, and, oh,
- The difference to me!
