The Netherlands (fragment)

The Netherlands (fragment)

Water and windmills, greenness, Islets green;
Willows whose Trunks beside the shadows stood
Of their own higher half, and willowy swamp:
Farmhouses that at anchor seem’d in the inland sky
The fog-transfixing Spires
Water, wide water, greenness and green banks,
And water seen



Poem The Netherlands (fragment) - Samuel Coleridge
