A slumber did my spirit seal
I had no human fears:
She seemed a thing that could not feel

    'Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.'
    Wordsworth realised our integration and resurrection through nature a long time before it became scientific knowledge.

    another year
    waiting for the scar
    to go away

    This poem is essentially an expression of the way that the poet suddenly realizes the humanity and reality of a close friend of his, a realization that is brought about by her death. This poem is only eight lines, and a result of this is an incredible density of information. Every nuance of the poem is near vital for the expression of the concerns of poet, in a number of different ways. The way that the poet thought about his friend is established in the first quatrain.
