Smoke, haze, morning, trees, spring

[April] 20th, Tuesday. A beautiful morning. The sun shone. William wrote a conclusion to the poem of the Butterfly—‘I’ve watched you now a full half-hour.’ I was quite out of spirits, and went into the orchard. When I came in, he had finished the poem.

—Dorothy Wordsworth (Grasmere Journal, 20.iv.1802)
