Talking about nature  movement can’t
be done without mentioning Samuel Taylor Coleridge. He started the Romantic
movement with the poet William Wordsworth whom we mentioned earlier. Samuel
Taylor Coleridge was born on the 21th of October , 1772 in England. He died on the
25th July 1834 near London. Beside being an English lyrical poet, he was also
critic and a philosopher. His Lyrical Ballads that he wrote together
with William Wordsworth characterized the English Romantic movement and
his Biographia Literaria is the most significant work of general literary
criticism produced in the English Romantic period.

In the poem, Coleridge
continuous the Romantic era defining practice of worshipping Nature as an
actual God. Again here the worshiping of nature is featured as a main theme and
therefore fitting with the Nature theme and also fitting with earlier covered poems.
This poem is set in the physical world, this is in contrast with other poems by
Coleridge which have some supernatural element in the. This physical world is
what inspires the poet to offer a prayer to Nature, and it is also the church
where that prayer is offered.

In first 5 lines
of the poem, the poet talks about that only his imagination is that what lets
him enjoy all earthly things. This joy is being felt from deep within the poet
heart. He then talks about that in his imagination, leaves and flowers become his
teachers and that these teachers teach him both how to love and how to have
faith.

In the next 3
lines  the poet speaks of that he does
not mind reality turning out the way it is intended.  Everyone can make fun of this because it isn’t
based on any truths however he doesn’t mind this. He is also not afraid that it
will become untrue. He also doesn’t care that no one else understands it. And
he also does not believe that it will not come to any purpose.

In these final lines,
Coleridge hints at the reader that he will build his own church that is in line
with nature. The dome of this church will be made out of an open sky. He talks
about how he will worship only with the scent of flowers. Nature is the only
God that exists for the Coleridge and that God will even love  a man like him.
