He Lived amidst th' Untrodden Ways

He lived amidst th' untrodden ways
To Rydal Lake that lead;

A bard whom there were none to praise,
And very few to read.

Behind a cloud his mystic sense,
Deep hidden, who can spy?
Bright as the night when not a star
Is shining in the sky.

Unread his works--his "Milk White Doe'
With dust is dark and dim;
It's still in Longman's shop, and oh!
The difference to him!
