John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:4917
AUTHOR:William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
QUOTATION:The sounding cataract
Haunted me like a passion; the tall rock,
The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood,
Their colours and their forms, were then to me
An appetite,—a feeling and a love,
That had no need of a remoter charm
By thoughts supplied, nor any interest
Unborrowed from the eye.
ATTRIBUTION:Lines completed a few miles above Tintern Abbey.
WORKS:William Wordsworth Collection.
