"The Night-Wood" page 108
"I sat in silent musing,
The soft wind waved my hair:
It told me Heaven was gloriuos,
And sleeping Earth was fair" (5-8).
This section of poem may seem simple, however I believe that it has a deeper meaning. If you read the entire poem and then come back to this section it seems as if the speaker is contemplating suicide. When the speaker says that Heaven is glorious but Earth is only fair what else is the reader left to think? Throughout the poem the speaker argues with Nature on how he wishes to be left alone even though they have been constant companions for the speakers entire life.
There are some words in this poem which fall into the category of onomatopoeia such as waved and murmur. There are normally five feet in a line, and it falls into iambic pentameter. There is no constant rhyme shceme, however there are a some lines that rhyme.
