She dwelt among the untrodden ways
Beside the springs of Dove,
A Maid whom there were none to praise
And very few to love:

A violet by a mossy stone
Half hidden from the eye!
Fair as a star, when only one
Is shining in the sky.

She lived unknown, and few could know
When Lucy ceased to be;
But she is in her grave, and, oh,
The difference to me!


I thought of this poem when my cat died. (Don't laugh. I miss her).
I would like to have known William Wordsworth.

Melee Oh, what a beautifully sad poem!

(And as someone who still misses her favourite pet mouse, I would never laugh. What was your cat's name? Cats are one of my most favourite things ever but I am tragically allergic.)


Sarah Her name was Nina.

Melee I like that for a cat's name. :)

Emilie i'm sad that nina died, sarah. my dog died in december, and i am still missing her so much it feels new and raw.

Sarah I'm sorry. The way I phrased that was misleading. Nina actually died years ago. I thought of this poem when she died...and now the poem always reminds me of her. That's what I meant to say.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog, Emilie. <3

Emilie oh, no worries, it could be read either way. it's a beautiful poem to always remind you of her. i like that, i wish i had a poem like that.

thank you.

Miriam It's okay to still miss Nina years later. <<>>


Sarah Thank you, Miriam. I half expected ridicule! But, I know all my friends are nice.
