Here you will find the Poem Lines To A Beautiful Spring In A Village of poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Once more, sweet stream! with slow foot wand'ring near, I bless thy milky waters cold and clear. Escaped the flashing of the noontide hours, With one fresh garland of Pierian flowers (Ere from thy zephyr-haunted brink I turn) My languid hand shall wreath thy mossy urn. For not thro' pathless grove with murmur rude Then soothest the sad wood-nymph, solitude: Nor thine unseen in cavern depths to well, The hermit-fountain of some dripping cell! Pride of the vale! thy useful streams supply The scattered cots and peaceful hamlet nigh. The elfin tribe around thy friendly banks With infant uproar and soul-soothing pranks, Released from school, their little hearts at rest, Launch paper navies on thy waveless breast. The rustic here at eve with pensive look Whistling lorn ditties leans upon his crook, Or starting pauses with hope-mingled dread To list the much-loved maid's accustom'd tread: She, vainly mindful of her dame's command, Loiters, the long-filled pitcher in her hand. Unboastful stream! thy fount with pebbled falls The faded form of past delight recalls, What time the morning sun of hope arose, And all was joy; save when another's woes A transient gloom upon my soul imprest, Like passing clouds impictured on thy breast. Life's current then ran sparkling to the noon, Or silvery stole beneath the pensive moon: Ah! now it works rude brakes and thorns among, Or o'er the rough rock bursts and foams along!
