Farthest Off From Every Eye

John Clare, Poems of the Middle Period, 1822-1837, ed. Eric Robinson, Volume V = Northborough Poems... (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 2003), p. 231:
The fieldling flower it thrives the best
The farthest off from every eye
The bird is happier on her nest
Where but the sheep go grazing bye
Ah me I think that I could rest
& think & sleep deliciously
A time worn forrests hermit guest
& fix a tent beneath a tree
John Singer Sargent, A Tent in the Rockies
