Willaim Wordworth - Deep Sympathy for Nature and Humanity

William Wordsworth had a deep respect for nature , he felt it taught him lessons of moral and personal development. In "Skating" the landscape touches him on a personal level , and its almost like we can see the young poets talents taking shape.

It is because of this we see deep sympathy for nature in his poetry. He lived in a time of Industrial revolution and felt like getting away from this and escaping back into nature.
In "To my sister" we see this. He even has to plea with her , who shared his great love of nature, to forget daily life an enjoy the spring. "Make haste , your morning task resign , come forth and feel the sun" he tells his sister and " One moment now may give us more than years of toiling reason".

William Wordsworth shows sympathy for his young daughter/child   , in "It is a beauteous evening" ,   that they are not moved by the natural as he is. He is disappointed " Dear child , Dear girl! / if thou appear   untouched by solemn thought" . Though he is not angry he tells her this doesn’t make her any less special "Thy nature is not therefore less divine/ Thou liest in Abraham’s bosom all the year".

His greatest display of his sympathy for humanity is in "She dwelt among the untrodden ways". He tells of the lonely life of   Lucy "She lived known , and very few could know , when Lucy ceased to be" . He feels sorry for Lucy , He praises her beauty in this poem "Fair as a star , when only one is shining in the sky". In her life/surroundings "there were none to praise her" and "very few to love". In his poetry he makes Lucy noticed by many , which didn’t happen in her life or even her death.

Many of   Wordworth’s poems are about the natural world , which would suggest he disliked cities , towns and urban life and that this is why he had such sympathy for nature but "Lines composed upon Westminster Bridge , Sept. 3 , 1802" would contradict this.

The morning sun is illuminating the city and the poet thinks the sun has never illuminated the...
