Life - Poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

As late I journey'd o'er the extensive plain
Where native Otter sports his scanty stream,
Musing in torpid woe a Sister's pain,
The glorious prospect woke me from the dream.

At every step it widen'd to my sight -
Wood, Meadow, verdant Hill, and dreary Steep,
Following in quick succession of delight, -
Till all - at once - did my eye ravish'd sweep!

May this (I cried) my course through Life portray!
New scenes of Wisdom may each step display,
And Knowledge open as my days advance!
Till what time Death shall pour the undarken'd ray,
My eye shall dart thro' infinite expanse,
And thought suspended lie in Rapture's blissful trance.

    He sure gets excited about nature, doesn't he? Like I said before, Coleridge finds a lot of his dramatic material for his poetry in nature. He sees POWER in the workings of nature.He doesn't want to just duplicate them, he wants his poetry to be them. That is typical opium using Coleridge for you. That's why his poems are so intense, emotional and rooted in the natural world. Bringing all that raging power of nature into this is his not very subtle way to get you to think about love, death, the soul, and such things. (Report) Reply
