Poet's Pilgrimage to Waterloo I

Robert Southey

Once more I see thee, Skiddaw! once again
Behold thee in thy majesty serene,
Where like the bulwark of this favoured plain,
Alone thou standest, monarch of the scene
Thou glorious Mountain, on whose ample breast
The sunbeams love to play, the vapours love to rest!

Skiddaw is a peak in the Lake District and the fourth highest mountain in England - 3054 ft (931 m).
