Nature More

~ There is a Pleasure in the Pathless Woods ~

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.

~ excerpt from Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage
by Lord Byron

  1. Jennifer, your photos are just wonderful. I feel the stillness of being at both places, the whisper of nature
    Thanks for the Lord Byron poem too. It is just beautiful, would it that one day I could tell my love like this.

    1. Miriam, I tried hard to find just the right photos from my collection to fit the verse. I guess I succeeded. 😊
      Byron was a master, and an unconventional fellow to boot. And please, don’t undersell yourself – I love your poetry too!

  2. Jennifer, a treat of photos by yourself and poem by Byron … the music of the ocean is hypnotic and draws us close nature … away from the distractions of our normal existence. We all need such solitude and recuperation of ‘Nature more’.
