THE WORLD IS TOO MUCH WITH US, LATE AND SOON,
by W. Wordsworth, 1802.
THE world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
The Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.–Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn; 10
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.

Today I woke up with the sound of water and the song of birds, it’s was a little bit weird, surprising and pleasant. For a moment I didn’t remember what happened to me and why I was here. After I’ve found my mind I decided to get up. My back hurted so I decided to shift my camp a few meters. Then, I sat down, breathless and I was facing the lake, near which I had settled. I suddenly felt so lonely but shooted. Rows of trees surrounded the lake and birds flew over, insects was swarming at my feet. I felt too much and at the same time accepted by this nature which continued to live despite my intrusive presence. I couldn’t think of anything exept the present nature, as if the people I knew had suddenly disappeared from my mind. It was just me and the present instant, just me and the nature and it was incredibly fascinating. Around what I supposed to be ten o’clock, the sun was high in the sky and it starting warming me up. The lake looked like a splendid mirror. So, as I had always loved sailing I decided to find something to make a raft to navigate quietly on the water and have another point of view of the place where I was. Fortunely I I found by chance a solid board of wood enough to support me. Day was begining in a cool way.
