In his clumsily entitled Extempore Effusion upon the Death of James Hogg, Wordsworth has these lines, after referring to Hogg and to Walter Scott: - "Nor has the rolling year twice measured, From sign to sign, its steadfast course, Since every mortal power of Coleridge Was frozen at its marvellous source; ... The rapt One, of the god-like forehead, The heaven-eyed creature sleeps in earth." And in his poem, Resolution and Independence, though he does not name Coleridge, it is almost certain that he had him in mind when he wrote: - "My whole life I have lived in pleasant thought, As if life's business were a summer mood; As if all needful things would come unsought To genial faith, still rich in genial good; But how can he expect that others should Build for him, sow for him, and at his call Love him, who for himself will take no heed at all?" When he read the news of Coleridge's death, Wordsworth's voice faltered and broke, as he said he was the most wonderful man that he had ever known. It is always worth while to know what one poet thinks of another, especially if the two have been contemporaries, friends, intimate companions.
