“Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.”
Such was the power nature had over Wordsworth, such was their bond. One of the greatest romantic poets that literature ever saw, was William Wordsworth and for him nature was his muse, his inspiration. Powerful emotions that nature evoked within him found a way from his heart to his pen. Since then, generations have come and gone. Each in their own way finding his poetry inspiring, finding nature inspiring. But poetry isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Romantic poetry can get very taxing. Living in urban cities, being surrounded by concrete buildings all around, finding the allure of nature can often become difficult. The emotions felt by them often get lost on us when we spend our days wrapped in the smoky haze of monotony and pollution. But all that changes when you set foot in Kerala.
