"Description of Skiddaw and Lake Derwent"
 description of skiddaw &
 lake derwent
Skiddaw upon thy heights thesun shines bright
but only for a moment thengives place
Unto a playful loud which onthy brow
Sports wantonly then floatsaway in air
throwing its shadow on thy

towering height

And darkens for a momentthy green side
But adds unto its beauty as itmakes
the sun more bright when itagain appears
Now hear my boyish moral
Then in the morning on thy
System generated line number

brow those clouds

Rest as upon a couch and givefair voi
scope

For fancys play. And airy fortresses 1
 and towers battlements andall appear. 2
 chasing the other off and intheir turn
 are chased by the others. But

 Ive treated of the clouds. 3 nowskiddaw come 4
noble and grand and beutiousclothed with green
and yet but scantily and insome parts
a bare terrific cliff precipitous
descends with only here &

there a root

a straggler there as tho grow with stonefor earth
straggling as it push its tendonsfrom the cliff

and bare and scraggy as befit the cliff
