The Period of Soul<br />Nature : An object of soul and living spirit.<br />Nature : A source of divine spirit.<br />Nature : A touch of spirituality and mystical apprehension<br />Presence of GOD in all aspect of nature.<br />“In all things, in all natures, in the stars<br />This active principle abides, from link to link<br />It circulates the soul of all the worlds.”<br />
  13. 13. Summing Up<br />He was a true devotee of nature to humanity.<br />In the words of Metthew Arnold.<br />“Nature not only gave him the matter but wrote his poems for him.”<br />Wordsworth was a in a true sense the most romantic and the purest soul of nature.<br />
