They and their wives and children - happier far
Could they have lived as do the little birds
That peck along the edges, or the kite
That makes its dwelling on the mountain rocks!

Illustration by Joseph Wolf for Wordswoth’s Deserted Cottage.

From The brothers Dalziel, by George and Edward Dalziel, London, 1901.
