A Pleasure in the Pathless Woods

Purgatory Creek Natural Area
San Marcos, Texas

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,,,

Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage
George Gordon Byron, 1788 - 1824
