'Breathings of Your Heart'

“Fill your papers with the breathings of your heart.” – William Wordsworth
Wise words from the man who helped launch what’s known as “The Romantic Age” in English literature with his share of the renowned Lyrical Ballads in 1798. 
                                    His “Lines Written in Early Spring,” one of the ballads, has some of the most beautiful descriptive writing about the season ever penned, and if you want to see a “How it should be done” piece read that one alone -- if you don’t have time for the entire Lyrical Ballads masterpiece.

Poet Laureate of Great Britain from1843-1850, the year of his death, Wordsworth wrote a string of beautiful in-depth poems over a span of 50 years, including The Prelude, considered one of the greatest epic poems of all time.

“The best portion of a man’s life," Wordsworth said,   "(are) his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.”
