to the grave by an immense concourse of persons of all ranks and all ages—a sweet and appropriate place for a poet's tomb, in that deep silence, broken only by the murmurs of the river, or of the complaining winds, among the simple peasants and dalesmen whose history he has recorded. In a grave surrounded by the Sycamore and the Yew, next to that of Hartley Coleridge, next to his own children early lost; there is a large plain slab of grey limestone, and on it the simple inscription

“WILLIAM WORDSWORTH.” Within Grasmere Church, over the pew which the Poet occupied, his friends and neighbours have placed an elegant tablet with a very good medallion likeness and the following inscription :

“ IN MEMORY OF WILLIAM WORDS WORTH, A TRUE PHILOSOPHER AND POET, WHO, BY THE SPECIAL GIFT AND CALLING OF ALMIGHTY GOD, WHETHER HE DISCOURSED ON MAN OR NATURE,

FAILED NOT TO LIFT UP THE HEART

TO HOLY THINGS;
TIRED NOT OF MAINTAINING THE CAUSE
OF THE POOR AND SIMPLE,
AND SO IN PERILOUS TIMES WAS RAISED UP TO BE A CHIEF MINISTER

NOT ONLY OF
NOBLEST POES Y,

BUT OF
HIGH AND SACRED TRUTH.

THIS MEMORIAL IS PLACED HERE BY HIS FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS, IN TESTIMONY OF

THEIR RESPECT, AFFECTION, AND GRATITUDE."

A Monument has also been placed in Westminster Abbey, which it may be hoped will by-and-by stand where it may be seen : at present it occupies a place in almost ignominious isolation.
