William wordsworth is one of the most important poet in romantic period. He use simple / clean language. His poem are based on nature. William wordsworth beliefs in healing / cureing power at nature. According to William wordsworth ; Nature is the best teacher. We may learn everything from nature. For instance ; He wrote I wandered lonely as a cloud. I wandered lonely as a Cloud
I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils;
Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.
The poem is rich with imagery and in the first stanza, he describes the scene as he wonders ‘as lonely as a cloud.’ He compares himself to a solitary could that is floating over valleys and the hills and then he sees a ‘crowd’ of golden daffodils which are under the trees and beside a lake and dancing in the breeze. He is admiring the beauty around him and capturing a beautiful snatched moment in time that nature has presented to him. So that he issues love of the nature.
