William Wordsworth: A Complaint

W i l l i a m   W o r d s w o r t h

(1770-1850)


A  C o m p l a i n t

 

There is a change–and I am poor;

Your Love hath been, nor long ago,

A Fountain at my fond Heart’s door,

Whose only business was to flow;

And flow it did; not taking heed

Of its own bounty, or my need.

 

What happy moments did I count!

Bless’d was I then all bliss above!

Now, for this consecrated Fount

Of murmuring, sparkling, living love,

What have I? shall I dare to tell?

A comfortless, and hidden WELL.

 

A Well of love–it may be deep–

I trust it is, and never dry:

What matter? if the Waters sleep

In silence and obscurity.

–Such change, and at the very door

Of my fond Heart, hath made me poor.
