Does the poet see his loved one as part of nature ? Which lines from the poem tells this ?(2 marks)
( A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal)

Dear student
The poet's imagination does not allow him to think of his dead loved one as a person living in a very happy state or in heaven. Rather he imagines her to be a part of nature, being buried under the earth. She rotates with the earth, along with the stones, rocks and trees.

 The lines in the poem which show this are as follows:

“Rolled round in earth’s diurnal course

With rocks and stones and trees.”
