There Is Pleasure In The Pathless Woods

There Is Pleasure In The Pathless Woods

from Childe Harold, Canto iv, Verse 178  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 cannot all conceal.
