  1. In Lucy Gray and There was a boy Wordsworth examines childhood in similar ways bringing out his views of this time in peoples lives

    In ?There was a boy? the natural world is depicted as steady and timeless in the first lines of the poem especially through the image of ?when the stars had just begun/ To move?. The stars are a recurring image in his poetry and symbolise timelessness and constancy in the natural world. They also represent a form of distant beauty creating spirituality in the natural world which the children often revere. In Lucy Gray ?the Moon? is depicted in a similar way to the stars but is also used to indicate the season is winter as ?the Minster-clock has just struck two? emphasising the danger of nature at this time of year, the danger of the dark and changing weather.
