What does the poet mean by the "touch of earthy years"?

Dear Student.
This poem is written by William Wordsworth. The words in the poem are used to create a mystery in the reader's mind. He is talking about his spirit who has stopped ageing also implying that she is dead. The woman about whom the poet is talking is frozen in her age. These lines are used to stir the deepest emotions of the reader. When the poet says that 'I have no human fears' he means that he no longer wants to live because his spirit is sealed with the unnamed woman who has gone into eternal slumber.

We hope that this answer solves your query.
Regards .
