Consider Wordsworth as a poet of Nature, as reflected in the poem, ‘Upon Westminster Bridge’

Wordsworth is a poet of Nature. His poetry generally presents natural scenes and rustic life. Here, the poet is inspired by the beauty of the city of London as seen from the Westminster Bridge in the early morning. The poet shows how a busy city like London has its own beauty in the bright morning. This beauty which clothes the city is silent yet glorious. Everything in the city has a romantic charm (615). Ships, towers, domes, theatres and temples are glittering in the smokeless air. The river Thames flows freely. Nature’s tranquillity is echoed in the sleeping city. Thus, the poet presents the city of London as an integral (Eftea) part of Nature bridging the urban-rural divide.
