Answer to Wordsworth Boey Kim Cheng By B.J. McArthur, A.J. McFarlane and S.H. Patel

Slide 2

You ought to be here, Nature has need of you. She has been ruined. Covered by brown haze, the blooms are quiet, and the winged creatures are few in a sky gradually like a withering clock. All trusts of Proteus ascending from the ocean have sunk; he is buried in the waste we dump. Triton\'s notes battle to be free, his well known horns are gagged, his eyes are bewildered, and Neptune lies powerless as a stranded whale, while insatiate man goes for the final death blow. Verse and devotion have started to come up short, as Nature\'s strength heart is lying still. O see the injury broadening in the sky, God is working to absolute his last cry.

London 1802 Milton! thou shouldst be inhabiting this hour; England hath need of thee: she is a fen Of stagnant waters: holy place, sword, and pen, Fireside, the chivalrous abundance of lobby and arbor, Have relinquished their old English dower Of internal joy. We are narrow minded men; Oh! raise us up, come back to us once more; And give us conduct, excellence, flexibility, control. Thy soul resembled a star, and abided separated; Thou hadst a voice whose sound resembled the ocean: Pure as the bare sky, grand, free, So didst thou go on life\'s normal way, In sprightly righteousness; but thy heart The lowliest obligations on herself did lay.

The world is a lot with us… The world is a lot with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we ruin our forces; Little we find in Nature that is our own; We have given our hearts away, a shameful shelter! This Sea that uncovers her chest to the moon, The winds that will wail at extremely inconvenient times, And are up-assembled now like dozing blossoms, For this, for everything, we are off key; It moves us not.- - Great God! I\'d rather be A Pagan suckled in an ideology outworn; So may I, remaining on this lovely lea, Have impressions that would make me less sad; Have sight of Proteus ascending from the ocean; Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.
