‘She Dwelt among the Untrodden Ways’
By William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
SHE dwelt among the untrodden ways
  Beside the springs of Dove,
A Maid whom there were none to praise
  And very few to love:
A violet by a mossy stone        5
  Half hidden from the eye!
—Fair as a star, when only one
  Is shining in the sky.
She lived unknown, and few could know
  When Lucy ceased to be;        10
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
  The difference to me!
