Castlemaine Mount Alexander Mail (Newspaper) - December 25, 1880, Castlemaine, Victoria National Library of Australia a Lazy Day among the lakes. Leisure hour. We had brought with us by Way of pretext of occupation such As Tho mind even in its dream Iest of moods requires Tho paper and other materials for letter writing. So i loft my Friend who really wished to write letters in the boat moored to the rocks and having armed Tny Solf with a Cushion and a Book which i had ,110 in Tention of Ever opening but which was again a pretence of occupation i climbed up the rocks on to the Island to find some soft and snug Retreat beneath the fir Trees whore i could Settle my self comfortably to gaze on the loveliness around and dream away an hour in perfect stillness yet in spite of All that is said against this propensity to dream and of the evil it is to indulge in it i must plead guilty to having done so no Only on this but i fear on Many other occasions and More i am inclined even to de fend the habit both in myself and other people at All events in the presence of either Noble music or Noble scenery. For either of these t hold has a kind of Nivar of inspiration which i an never affect is to the full except when we resign our senses and our mind entirely to its Sway. So there to the inspiring influence of the loveliness before me ,1 resigned myself entirely seated on a natural seat of grass and Rock with the Flaky stems of the firs All round me their dusk tops , in the almost unfelt airs that wandered by and with the. Vision before me Between the fir stems in the moving water floor and the rugged breast and heaven cutting brows of the mighty Hills. There i simply sought to drink in All that i could of the divine and quintessential loveliness to Steep my senses and Ray whole self in it As if i could by any Means become myself a part of it or of. The inner consciousness of which it was the manifestation i have no pictorial remembrance of. The scene of its details of Sharp outline and coloured breadth of Light and Shade. 1 cannot paint such scenes and i believe i should have lost much had i sought to fix the floating my. Vision in the unchanging rigidity of a picture. Even to a Turner his own paintings Are merely a combination of mechanical strokes and sweeps. Though to the rest of the world they come near to nature herself in elusive mysteries and As brimming Wells of inspiration. But i have Tho dim sense of the whole scene still Strong in my memory and can reproduce at will the feeling of trance Gladh Esb and ecstacy. That held me As i gazed. And so of All our Days among the lakes believe that this Day of idleness was the least wasted. The glory and loveliness that to drink in in such tranquil moments become u very part not Only of tour passive memories but of our acting selves and engender fair thoughts and actions in. After Days and scenes when to least dream of such a connection. The soul that spreads itself to receive such gifts As a Bare Mountain Meadow receives the dropping Dews and showers shall surely afterwards show Tho -result.1 nor in All can these showers of Blessing find Butoli meet and unhindered channels that from their secret hid Itie place Thev can hereafter break Forth in a Rich wellhead of glorious song. And valleys and pastures for far Distant wayfarers. Such a soul such or responsive to the gifts of nature had Wordsworth the. Presence of 7whose poetry seems yet to linger on All the. Mountains and the lakes he loved so Well. But though there can he few like him who show so richly the grains from their i draught of natural delights yet All squib who in any Way appreciate these show some in crease of poetry and sympathy As. The roughest Hill Side puts Forth a Greener Blade. And tenderer Blossom for the Sake of the Sweet Shower that has fallen on it. And for the Sake of such in fluence i would advise All visitors to the Lake ".District, though they have climbed All Mountain tops from skid Diw and Lerica Thara to of Piston Man or Black Combe not to fancy they have got All that is to be had of their visit till they have tried at least one " Lazy Day. Among the lakes. " a chinaman on London railways. London has no Wall around it but the railway viaducts have somewhat the appearance of a City Wall. The houses Are so close together. I hat in Nany is no room for a railway to pass when recourse is had to a Bridge made of huge stones which Soare As it were Over the houses. The framework of. These Bridges is of Iron planked with Wood on which Are spread Earth and Sand. People who Are lying of their Beds Down Boloy in houses 100 feet High Are almost always conscious of a noise above them and know when a train is passing overhead by its Low continuous rumble As of Thunder while to one seated Iri the train the people below look like a Warp and Woof of Soto texture and the streets lanes and marketplaces like deep interstices in Mountain Klee or one is inclined to believe that they Are channels out out of the ground and to forget that one is on a Bridge far up above them. It is As if one were on a level with the Topmost Point of a Pagoda and Able by stooping to touch the Mast Heads of tall ,7ships As they passed. When i first reached London aver Thino that i saw frightened and astonished me. Nineteenth Century. 1 �50 Reward.
