    Great Poetry from the Romantic Era

    I love this collection of Wordsworth's poetry because it contains my favorite of his poems--Ode: Intimations of Immortality. I've always enjoyed British Romantic Poets and Our Walt Whitman. Wordsworth writes about the beauty of the world we live in and our connection to God within this world. In a fast paced world, it is good to take a few moments either out of doors or at home reading his works and reconnecting our spirit to something greater than ourselves.
