At leisure let us view from day to day,
As they present themselves, the spectacles
Within doors: troops of wild beasts, birds and beasts
Of every nature, from all climes convened,
And, next to these, those mimic sights that ape
The absolute presence of reality,
Expressing, as in mirror, sea and land
And what earth is, and what she hath to show.
William Wordsworth, Prelude (1805)
