THE ECLIPSE OF THE SUN, 1820

          HIGH on her speculative tower

          Stood Science waiting for the hour

          When Sol was destined to endure

          'That' darkening of his radiant face

          Which Superstition strove to chase,

          Erewhile, with rites impure.

 

          Afloat beneath Italian skies,

          Through regions fair as Paradise

          We gaily passed,--till Nature wrought

          A silent and unlooked-for change,                          

          That checked the desultory range

          Of joy and sprightly thought.

William Wordsworth
