Dejection: An Ode Tough-o-Meter

By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

In his day, Coleridge tried to write poems for common, everyday people, but those folks aren't very common in the twenty-first century. Trust us, though—it's worth the climb. Once you reach the top of this poem, you're treated to an emotion-rich view of the natural world.
