Nature in Wordsworths poems Let me start of by saying I have never been much of a poetry reader I prefer clearly written stories with easily discernable plots That being said I enjoyed Wordsworths poems Well the parts I could understand at least I noticed a running motif of Nature through most of his poems In the poem Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey the speaker has returned to a beautiful rural place that he visited in his youth The poem is written in iambic pentameter but has no rhyme scheme The speaker sits and admires the landscape and recalls that these beauteous forms through a long absence have not been to me Here the speaker is saying that although he was away he could still imagine the landscape and all its glory He goes on to say that when he is in less serene places he imagines being here and the thought sooths him In contrast the speaker in Intimations of Immortality the speaker is having trouble appreciating the nature that surrounds him In the first two stanzas the speaker talks about a time when he appreciated the beauty of nature but in the third stanza we learn that as an adult looking on nature he feels a thought of grief The next eight stanzas convey the idea that children come from a world more beautiful than this and they appreciate nature because it reminds them of where they came from As the children grow older they begin to forget In the end the speaker seems to be enjoying nature asking the birds to sing and having children dance around and play In both poems the speaker is focusing on his own memory of nature and his personal relationship to it and it seems that this is a common motif in Wordsworths poems
