A Night-Piece Analysis

Author: Poetry of William Wordsworth Type: Poetry Views: 850

------The sky is overcast

With a continuous cloud of texture close,

Heavy and wan, all whitened by the Moon,

Which through that veil is indistinctly seen,

A dull, contracted circle, yielding light

So feebly spread, that not a shadow falls,

Chequering the ground--from rock, plant, tree, or tower.

At length a pleasant instantaneous gleam

Startles the pensive traveller while he treads

His lonesome path, with unobserving eye

Bent earthwards; he looks up--the clouds are split

Asunder,--and above his head he sees

The clear Moon, and the glory of the heavens.

There, in a black-blue vault she sails along,

Followed by multitudes of stars, that, small

And sharp, and bright, along the dark abyss

Drive as she drives: how fast they wheel away,

Yet vanish not!--the wind is in the tree,

But they are silent;--still they roll along

Immeasurably distant; and the vault,

Built round by those white clouds, enormous clouds,

Still deepens its unfathomable depth.

At length the Vision closes; and the mind,

Not undisturbed by the delight it feels,

Which slowly settles into peaceful calm,

Is left to muse upon the solemn scene.

Wordsworht describes the people on erath are simply ignoring nature, missing the good parts of life. The night is majestic as well as the moon, who silently overlooks the earth below. It in fact startles the musing man to look around and enjoy the surrouinding nature. HE goes on to describe the night sky: it is so vast and "immeasurably distant" . All of this opens up the mind, allows it to dwell on what is now perceptible to. The sky, unlimited in depth, has made the mind unlimited in capability
