A Wordsworth Song
Bradley A. Bombardier, composer

Duration: 3 minutes
“Ah What though the radiance which was once so bright,
Be now forever taken from my sight;
Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor
In the grass of glory in the flow’r,
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what remains behind.
Thanks to the human heart by which we live.
Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, its tears.
To me the meanest flow’r that grows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.”
