29 Document 1  By William Wordsworth’s “The Tables Turned” Up! up! My friend, and quit your books; Or surely you’ll grow double: Up! Up! My Friend, and clear your looks; Why all this toil and trouble? The sun, above the mountain’s head, A freshening lustre mellow Through all the long green fields has spread, His first sweet evening yellow. Books! ‘tis a dull and endless strife: Come, hear the woodland linnet, how sweet his music! on my life, There’s more of wisdom in it. And hark! How blithe the throstle sings! He, too, is no mean preacher: Come forth into the light of things, Let nature be your teacher. She has a world of ready wealth, Our minds and hearts to bliss-spontaneous wisdom breathed by health, Truth breathed by cheerfulness. One impulse from a vernal wood may teach you more of man, of moral evil and of good, than all the sages can. Sweet is the lore which nature brings; our meddling intellect misshapen the beauteous forms of things:- we murder to dissect. Enough of science and of art; close up those barren leaves; come forth, and bring with you a heart that watches and receives
