The World is Too Much With Us - Alanda Calmus

  • Hand written in copper throuogh the gold background is the poem by William Wordsworth "The World is Too Much With Us".

    The world is too much with us; late and soon,

    Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—

    Little we see in Nature that is ours;

    We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

    This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;

    The winds that will be howling at all hours,

    And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;

    For this, for everything, we are out of tune;

    It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be

    A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;

    So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,

    Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;

    Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;

    Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.
