There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore
There is a society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but nature more.
--Lord Byron

Oh Endment, these words from Lord Byron and that lovely photo are balm for the spirit this morning, a cool green breeze and splendid dappled shade to bask in. Thank you!

What a great poem and photo. I wish I had written those few words that Lord Byron wrote, because they so precisely describe how I feel. Thanks for posting that.

What an idyllic place to go walking and think poetic thoughts. Your photo is lovely - nature at its best with a beam of sunlight across the wide path and a vestige of the wonderful stone walls of the northeast that hint of history. " ... I love not man the less but nature more." - one of my favourite lines of poetry. Thank you for a cool gift on this hot, hot southwestern day.

Exquisite choice. It is exactly how I feel about being on Whidbey Island, where I love to just let my being spread out into the quiet of the place, soak in the natural world, and stay far away from people and events. Nothing is more of a luxury, as far as I am concerned, and there is precious little opportunity to get it!

I want to be in that picture, rolling around in some cool, green moss.

Whilst i endorse all that has been said regarding the poem, i instill a note of caution, be careful what you wish for, or watch the cautionary true tale of a young man who went in search of the same idyll reflected in the poem, and maybe like me you will see both sides of lifes coin, the film is INTO THE WILD, i urge all dreamers to watch it and wish for a better ending, peace,
macman.
