The romantic era is an era of understanding, emotion, and a love for vivid imagery usually relating to nature, or the beauty of nature. The writers of the Romantic era were becoming aware of the amazing aspects of nature. They were also becoming tragically aware that they were losing it as fast as they were gaining appreciation for it. Nature is, and always has been, a place of genuine solitude, even before the Romantic era. This era just happened to be a time where many writers were enlightened of the instruction, and nourishment nature can allow the soul to find and exploit in so many ways. It is a source of true inspiration, and flawless beauty.

In Percy Bysshe Shelley’s, "Ode to the West Wind," his erotic language is able to "invoke the spirit of the West Wind." His story of nature reveals an individual outlook, an ability to challenge the self, and invoke adventure into ones life. Not only is the wind a beautiful destruction, but it’s still able to preserve life, continue the cycle, and allow no one but the Wind to take any action. The wind is capable of changing, moving, growing, and constantly staying the same. The wind has no agenda, it only continues upon a path it’s been made for. It’s under control, and at the same time completely untamable and unchangeable. As a person and an author, Percy Bysshe Shelley, only wants to be picked up, changed, moved, relocated as, "a wave, a leaf, a cloud." He forever longs to be as much as a part of nature as She will allow him to feel. Percy has his own way of being one with the wind. As a writer, his words are leaves. His words are a part of nature he pieces together to make sentences, and paragraphs, and poems. He spreads them about to let them pollinate and form new life. His dead, past thoughts, are merely withered leaves, doing their jobs as they may, protecting the ground and helping the soil. The spring can only be seen as imagination, morality, liberty, and the human consciousness. Percy Shelley doesn’t see nature as just a source of beauty, and eye boggling goodness. He sees it as art, which he conveys in his anything but simple nature metaphors. His love for nature is greatly expressed in such a gorgeous five sonnet ode.

In "To Autumn" by John Keats, you can’t miss the growling and perfect imagery. He opens, addressing Autumn, and Autumn’s remarkable relationship with the almighty sun. The sun ripens Autumn’s fruit, allows the belated flowers to bloom, and lets her flourish constantly. Without the sun, Autumn would not be. To John Keats, Autumn is nonetheless a Goddess, and not only in her figure. She is not to listen to the songs of past seasons-but allow herself to listen to her own music, the twilight sounds, bleats from the hills, crickets chirping, and the everlasting singing from the skies.

Autumn is a time of love, warmth, and plenty. It’s meant to be lost, only to be reground, grown again, and lost again. Autumn is able to be 100% beautiful, calm, and gentle, all in the midst of harvest being gathered and the migration of the swallows in the coming winter. The art of creation is a form of self-harvesting to Keats. He is allowing a pen to harvest his thoughts, his feelings, his emotions, as well as we harvest the fields, the wheat, the corn. The result: grain. We eat, we learn, we nourish, we grow, and we do it all again. Seasons come, and seasons go, but the seasons will always come and go, if you will. At the end, when Autumn’s plentiful harvest has ended, and the fields bear no grain, the flowers will have been cut down, the skies will be dry, and the cider-press will be used up, this season will still have came, saw, and conquered. In it’s inept beauty, no one is away to take that away from such a vast and powerful goddess. Nature is as it always was and always will be, vastly important and undeniably remarkable. All good things come to an end, if only to start again. Autumn is not forever, just as Mr. Keats has realized he can never be. Although he is mortal, he is not eternal, and he will one day carry on a voyage to death and the white light, he has accepted this, through nature. Mortality is not an end, but possibly a new beginning, allowing him to appreciated the beauty and wisdom of time, since he cannot stop, prevent, or change it. He should not look at the past seasons, but sing his song loudly. Rejoice.

Nature is important to my life, obviously, because I am a spiritual being, on a spiritual adventure. It’s so easy for me to relate to the Romanticism period, because I feel like nature is where I belong. Oddly enough, nature is being taken away from us in the society we live in. Who could have foreseen that? I guess all these old dead guys had some idea of what they were talking about, huh? People are destructive; they come, take, pillage, rape, destroy, and unearth our earth. Nature is beautiful; nature is abundant, raw, and able to overcome anything, right? Maybe. Nature is one thing I can honestly say I feel completely connected to and totally opposite of at the same time. Either way, nature became very important to these gentleman writers of the eighteenth century, and invoked so much beautiful imagery and unsaid notions.
