Lines Written in Early Spring
By William Wordsworth
I heard a thousand blended notes
 While in a grove I sat reclined
 In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
 Bring sad thoughts to the mind
The birds around me hopped and played
 their thoughts I cannot measure
 But the least motion which they made
 aIt seemed a thrill of pleasure
Q.1 Rearrange the lines in proper order:Pass into nothingness; but will keep
Full of sweet dreams, and health and quiet breathing.
Its loveliness increases,it will never
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
A thing of beauty is a joy forever
