Wordsworth has outlived many of his con
temporaries among the poets—as will be seen from some lines in the latter part of this selection, in which he touches upon the fact with much solemnity of sorrow and reflection. One of his most thoughtful and earnest admirers has spoken no more than the truth, when saying— “Many will join in my prayer, that health and strength of body and mind may be granted to him, to complete the noble works which he has still in store, so that men may learn more worthily to understand and appreciate what a glorious gift God bestows on a nation, when he gives them a poet.”
