This page intentionally left blank FROM LYRICAL BALLADS (1798) fig. 1 Title-page of Lyrical Ballads (1798). This page intentionally left blank Lines left upon a Seat in a Yew-tree WHICH STANDS NEAR THE LAKE OF ESTHWAITE, ON A DESOLATE PART OF THE SHORE, YET COMMANDING A BEAUTIFUL PROSPECT —Nay, Traveller! rest.

(’tis a wish of mine) Now that our morning meal is done, Make haste, your morning task resign; Come forth and feel the sun.
