Mosaic Monday: England & Wordsworth

I am joining Mary at Little Red House  for Mosaic Monday.   With Easter season upon us, I wanted to capture the mood with a lovely mosaic.  I discovered some photography on Flickr  that so captured the mood I was wanting.  The photographer so graciously allowed me to show you these photos.  Please click on link below photos for credit to the photographer.  The photography was taken in England.  To capture the mood even better I have paired the images with the words of one of the masters of the Romantic Age, William Wordsworth.
1. Tombstones in the Mist, 2. Bowood Lake, 3. The Cross in the Triangle., 4. All Saints, Yatesbury

I thought these words best fit:  1. Tombstones in the Mist

That blessed mood,
In which the burden of the mystery,
In which the heavy and the weary weight,
Of all this unintelligible world,
Is lightened.
Composed by William Wordsworth-1798

1. Bath Abbey Nave., 2. St Peter's. Leckhampton., 3. Warm Light in a Dark Corner., 4. Westbury Court Tulips

I thought these words best fit photo 3. Warm Light in a Dark Corner

The sun, that seems so mildly to retire,
Flung back from distant climes a streaming fire,
Whose blaze is now subdued to tender gleams,
Prelude of night's approach with soothing dreams.
 Composed by William Wordsworth
On Easter Sunday April 7, 1833
