: Grasmere, in 1903, that Mr. New and I met to settle the project of this little book and the form in which it should be presented to the public. We visited Dove Cottage together; we walked through the churchyard where Wordsworth lies so quietly, listening to the soft voice of the river he loved ;we went to Far Easdale, and on another day followed the stream that falls from the deep hollow of Easdale Tarn till it reaches the alders near Steel Bridge; we were companions of the Rothay as it runs, with a young mans strength, from Pelter Bridge to the meadows of A mbleside; we talked together of all the mountains that surround the valley of Fairfield and Great Rigg, of Stone Arthur and Seat Sandal, of Loughrigg and Silver How, great creatures of the flying mist and the quiet stars, whose names and characters, through a poets power, are dear to England and the lovers of beauty beyond the shores of England. I felt with him that the poetry of Wordsworth when he dealt with the scenery of the Lake Country had not as yet been fully illustrated, that the artists, seduced by the picturesque, had not sufficiently realised that spiritual essence of the landscape and its parts the soul of lonely places which Wordsworth made the foundation of his poetry of nature.
