Member of the New Society of Painters in Water Colours. "As to thy Lakes, Llanberis wild, I bent/ My gaze adown thy steep and rugged pass,/ From craggy mountain-slopes which buttress up/ Old Snowden on his rock-crown'd heights, it seem'd--/ So rude and savage was the scene--as if,/ In ages far remote, some Giant here/ The Demon of the hills in conflict dire/ Had met, and each 'gainst those massive blocks/ Had hurl'd, which still lie scatter'd, huge and grand, amidst thy cliffs." [P. 26.]
