  • ...melancholy, which we can explain at least to some extent when we find her telling us how in the grip of it she would imagine: My lines decried, and my employment thought An useless folly or presumptuous fault: The employment, which was thus censured, was, as far as one can see, the harmless one of rambling about the fields and dreaming: My hand delights to trace unusual things, And deviates from the known and common way, Nor will in fading silks compose, Faintly the inimitable rose.
