On Approaching the Staub-Bach, Lauterbrunnen
William Wordsworth (17701850)
While we were at the Waterfall, some half-score peasants, chiefly women and girls, assembled just out of reach of the spring, and set upsurely, the wildest chorus that ever was heard by human earsa song not of articulate sounds, but in which the voice was used as a mere instrument of music, more flexible than any which art could produce,sweet, powerful, and thrilling beyond description.Robert Southey, Notes to A Tale of Paraguay.
