wonderment {words by Lord Byron}

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
  There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society where none intrudes,
  By the deep sea, and music in its roar.
  I love not man the less, but Nature
more,
From these our interviews, in which I 
steal
  From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet can not all
conceal.

               ~ From Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, Lord Byron

With gratitude,
Joanna
