"Hail to thee, Wye - famed river of Siluria! Well deserving fame, worthy of warmest salutation! From they fountain-head on Plinlimmon's far slope, where thou leapest forth, gay as a girl on her slip-rope, through the rugged rocks of Brecon and Radnor, that like rude men would detain thee, snatching but a kiss for their pains - on, as woman grown, with statelier step, amid the wooded hills of Herefordshire, which treat thee with more courtly consideration - still on, and once more rudely assailed by the bold ramparts of Monmouth - through all thou makest way - in despite all, preserving thy purity!" - Prologue
