When describing nature one must look at the speakers past experiences The speaker talks about his past experiences of the deep rivers lonely streams and large mountains He rather carefully describes the process of his seeing as it unfolds like the landscape to a blind mans eye He put into words that nature is not firm rather it is free flowing and unique It does not go by certain rules but is random and yet crystal-clear The speaker then describes how his memory of these beauteous forms has worked upon him in his absence from them when he was alone or in crowded towns and cities they provided him with sensations sweet Felt in the blood and felt along the heart The memory of the woods and cottages offered tranquil restoration to his mind and even affected him when he was not aware of the memory influencing his deeds of kindness and love He begins to divide the landscape on one hand is the river and on another is the sky These two very different settings in a way give the impression to be connected by the steep and lofty cliffs The speaker talks about him losing something great but gaining something even greater Wordsworth begins to realize and understand the bonds of human beings and how not only we affect each other but outside forces also affect us That time is now past he says but he does not mourn it for though he cannot resume his old relationship with nature he has been amply compensated by a new set of more mature gifts for instance he can now look on nature not as in the hour Of thoughtless youth but hearing oftentimes The still sad music of humanity And he can now sense the presence of something far more subtle powerful and fundamental in the light of the setting suns the ocean the air itself and even in the mind
