Nature - Wordsworth
Oregon ~ 2011
William Wordsworth was an English poet who poetically expressed his love of nature and respect for humanity without regard to class distinctions. In his poem Nightingale! Thou Surely Art, he exemplifies how spiritual values take root in nature. Simply by taking the time to enjoy the the sounds of nature we can be inspired and become whole.
Immersing yourself in the present moment and shutting out all distractions that tend to busy the mind, you can allow the joyful sounds of nature to take the main stage in your mind and body and find instant peace. I am sure if you recall back to the most joyful and peaceful feelings in your life it will take to a place in nature. It is not by accident that some of the world's most famous poets have found nature to be their source of inspiration. As you read Wordsworth poem try to imagine what he felt while writing it. Understand that this poem goes deeper than a bird singing, but rather he is telling us all to let go of our obsessions and seek out the harmony and insights that nature provides.
