Cowper had a great love of Milton's poems; but arguably there is no English poet who has written poems less like Milton's.

Cowper had a great love of Milton's poems; but arguably there is no English poet who has written poems less like Milton's. What are perhaps Cowper's best poems - certainly the most enjoyable - are easy to read, and make you want to use Eighteenth-century terms of approval like "easy". At his best his poetry manages to be dignified, humorous and often immensely full of pity for the miseries humans put themselves through, or are put through.

Twelve years have elapsed since I first took a view Of my favourite field, and the bank where they grew, And now in the grass behold they are laid, And the tree is my seat that once lent me a shade

William Cowper (26 November 1731 – 25 April 1800, Hertfordshire). Twelve years have elapsed since I first took a view Of my favourite field, and the bank where they grew, And now in the grass behold they are laid, And the tree is my seat that once lent me a shade. The blackbird has fled to another retreat Where the hazels afford him a screen from the heat; And the scene where his melody charmed me before Resounds with his sweet-flowing ditty no more.

Poems, Том 1. William Cowper. Стр. 295 - I last took a view Of my favourite field, and the bank where they grew ; And now in the grass behold they are laid, And the tree is my seat, that once lent me a shade. The blackbird has fled to another retreat, Where the hazels afford him a screen from the heat, And the scene, where his melody charm'd me before, Resounds with his sweet-flowing ditty no more.
