Nuns Fret Not at Their Convent’s Narrow Room
a poem by WILLIAM WORDSWORTH


Nuns fret not at their convent’s narrow room;
And hermits are contented with their cells;
And students with their pensive citadels;
Maids at the wheel, the weaver at his loom,
Sit blithe and happy; bees that soar for bloom,
High as the highest Peak of Furness-fells,
Will murmur by the hour in foxglove bells:
In truth the prison, into which we doom
Ourselves, no prison is: and hence for me,
In sundry moods, ’twas pastime to be bound
Within the Sonnet’s scanty plot of ground;
Pleased if some Souls (for such there needs must be)
Who have felt the weight of too much liberty,
Should find brief solace there, as I have found.

pcmcgarry Grim looking building, looks very weathered. Works very well in B/W. Great words, enough to put the fear of God in you or William Wordsworth at the very least. I enjoyed the whole thing today Antonio.

dogydad2 Love the contrast between the stark, imposing lines of the architecture and the wispy dream-like forms in the clouds.
