    “Buried beneath the glittering / Lake Its place no longer to be found; / But the lost fragments shall remain / To fertilize some other ground.” A previously unpublished poem by Dorothy Wordsworth, (poet, sister, and muse of William), “Lines addressed to my kind friend & medical attendant, Thomas Carr,” is on the Oxford University Press blog. Wordsworth was, at the time, suffering from arteriosclerosis and dementia.
