    He uses such simple words and metaphors and yet the depth of his love and loss are not hidden. (Report) Reply

    And as I read this I do feel
    What you felt when she did cease
    A poets longing and sadness steal
    Across my heart, May she rest in peace.........

    It's one of the beautiful poems of Wordsworth. The words which he uses to show his love to Lucy are fantastic. (Report) Reply

    Subrata Ray, from Uluberia, West Bengal, leaves the following commentary on Wordsworth's poem, She Dwelt Among Untrodden Ways.
    She appears Wordsworth's mind-born nature-goddess.Lucy is not Tagore's J'ivan Davota', -the mariner of the poet's -life -boat.She seems to me the illegitimate child born of the poet and his French mistress Emily Vallon. Lucy's reference finds hints to Wordsworth's 'By the Sea'.As the poet could not shower his filial affection to the child, and as he was away from her so, he re-directs his emotional stream to one who would simply would become a natural without being haunted by any intellect, or feeling.

    To an instinct -governed romantic, the poem is an art, -an enigma indeed.
    Why does the poet mourn at the demise of Lucy? Lucy, the poet wishes, if remains alive, would be a perfect emblem of Nature.Does Wordsworth know the perfected form of Nature?

    Yes, I too have loved this poem. Our hostess who presented it is to be commended for
    giving the fruits of this lovely poet to the world of Cyberville.

    It is a heart wrenching grouping of words, maybe to which many relate
    Many ponder. (Report) Reply
