THE ALDINE WORDSWORTH.
The lines printed overleaf were by an oversight omitted from Vol. I., where they should be inserted after the title-page.
Ir thou indeed derive thy light from Heaven,
And they that from the zenith dart their beams, (Visible though they be to half the earth, Though half a sphere be conscious of their brightness)
Are yet of no diviner origin,
No, purer essence, than the one that burns,
Humbly to hang, like twinkling winter lamps,
