A slumber did my Spirit Seal
By William Wordsworth

  • This poem is about the poet's feelings on the death of a loved one.
  • The poet says that he had been in a state of deep sleep. It seemed as if the slumber had sealed his spirit. 
  • In that dream like stage he was unable to sense any realities and had no human fears or anxieties.
  • His beloved being dead will not be able to feel the touch of earthly years.
  • She doesn't have motion or force, she is unable to hear or see.
  • She has become a part of nature with other rocks, stones and trees.. She is also turning around with the earth in its everyday motion.
