“…waking woods…”

_There's music in the waking woods.There's glory in the air._

Quote by John Clare (1793-1864).

According to Wikipedia, “John Clare was an English poet, the son of a farm labourer, who came to be known for his celebratory representations of the English countryside and his lamentation for its disruption.” Clare was influenced by William Shakespeare, George Gordon Byron, and Robert Burns.
