Romantic poets have a deep appreciation for the nature that surrounds them and are able to see passed the superficial parts of life in order to see what nature has to offer. The poem “Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey” by William Wordsworth is a prime example of romanticism. Wordsworth uses this poem to express to deep love for nature and how nature was able to completely change his life for the better. He uses love of nature, spontaneity and freedom, importance of commonplace, and supernatural forces to help the reader better understand nature. Nature is a major key to writing a romantic poem.
Looking deeply into nature brings the feelings of sublime contentment and new feelings of inspiration that one cannot find in any alternate surrounding. In Wordsworth's "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," the speaker, when "in vacant or in pensive mood," recalls a memory of a past picturesque outdoor scene that "is the bliss of [his] solitude." His mind's pencil edges a lasting portrait of a scene in nature and the emotions of its beauty in the speaker's mind. The "dancing daffodils" will stay with the speaker even when the original drawing has faded.

Nature has the ability to reawaken one’s inner youth.

Throughout Frost’s poetry he draws upon the beauty of nature to build up vast amounts of scenery. To contrast from nature, Frost also uses the integration of industrialized rural life. Frost uses nature to build the beauty in his poetry, but also uses it to say things that cannot be said with words alone.
Therefore, the poet uses syntax and form to emphasize on the important matters that occurred in each stanza. To conclude, William Wordsworth uses form and syntax and figurative language to stress on his mental journey, and to symbolize the importance of the beauty and peace of nature. In my opinion, the poet might have written this poem to show his appreciation towards nature. The poem has a happy mood especially when the poet is discussing the daffodils. In this poem the daffodils are characterized as more than flowers, but as humans “fluttering and dancing in the breeze” (line 6).
There are three main things that account for Robert Frost’s poetry. In his poems, he uses familiar subjects, like nature, people doing everyday things and simple language to express his thoughts. His poems might be easy to read by some, but not necessarily east to understand. It is not hard to see through his poems, how deeply moved he is by the Earth. In many of Frost’s poems about nature, he recognizes the beauty of nature, but is also confused and sometimes saddened by its continuous change.
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud by William Wordsworth “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud” by William Wordsworth, a poem that discloses the relationship between nature and human beings: how nature can affect one’s emotion and behavior with its motion and sound. The words the author adopted in this poem are interconnected and related to each other. They are simple yet profound, letting us understand how much William Wordsworth related his works to nature and the universe. It also explained to us why William Wordsworth is one of the greatest and the most influential English romantic poets in history. As Robert DiYanni says in his book, “with much of Wordsworth’s poetry, this lyric reflects his deep love of nature, his vision of a unified world, and his celebration of the power of memory and imagination.” In “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” William Wordsworth uses various natural phenomena, such as clouds, daffodils and waves, as devices to characterize his speaker’s different stages of emotion and feeling.
Poetic devices such as assonance, “young country”, and alliteration,”sitting singing songs”, are euphonic, offering pleasant soft sounds. Inversion is used for emphasis “all day long, I’m sitting singing songs for everyone.” Nature is personified as a motherly being and human attributes are given to the daisies. The song presents to the listener a new ear to listen from. This ear is intuitive and can hear the sounds of nature. In the song “Mother Nature’s son”, there is a deep appreciation of the beauties of nature which is a highly stressed Romantic quality.
Attitude and Appreciation of the Natural World in Gerard Manley Hopkins and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Poetry The simple beauty of nature is an aspect many of us take for granted in our everyday lives - the endearing sounds of birds welcoming another day and the powerful gush of a waterfall being some examples of these. But there are those individuals who have endeavoured to fully comprehend the marvellous complexity of the world around us. Such findings are present in the work of many poets - namely Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844 - 1889)and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1808 - 1882). Hopkins and Longfellow were two contemporary poets from the nineteenth century from different cultures, English and American respectively who relished in the gift of nature with all her attributes. Both of their work is characterised by a deep and personal sense of appreciation of the beauty of the natural world - work that when studied makes us truly delight in the wonder that is nature.
Robert Frost's Use of Nature in Poetry Robert Frost, an American poet of the late 19th century, used nature in many of his writings. Frost was very observant of nature, he often used it to represent the emotion of his characters in his poetry. I will use "West-Running Brook" and "Once by the Pacific" to demonstrate Frost's use of nature in his writings. Robert Frost was born March 26, 1874 in San Francisco ("American Writers" 150). In 1885, the dying request of his father took Frost back to Massachusetts for the burial.
Nature in Context vs. Nature out of Context Nature has long been the focus of many an author's work, whether it is expressed through poetry, short stories, or any other type of literary creation. Authors have been given an endless supply of pictures and descriptions because of nature's infinite splendor that can be vividly reproduced through words. It is because of this fact that often a reader is faced with two different approaches to the way nature is portrayed. Some authors tend to look at nature from a more extensive perspective as in William Wordsworth's "I wandered Lonely as a Cloud."
