It opens up the idea of this loss as being something personally shaking. In the second line, we get an idea of what has been lost ? some person's love, which 'hath been, nor long ago.' This tells us that, whatever has happened between the two of them, is a shock to the poet, and that it probably has happened quite recently 'nor long ago.' Whatever it is, the poet takes it quite strongly to the heart. This metaphorical image of fountain captures the original intensity of the friend's love because fountains project water with some force.

Compare and contrast how Lord Byron's She Walks in Beauty and William Wordsworth's She was a Phantom of Delight explore the theme of attraction to mysterious beauty. In your answer you must comment on:
"In conclusion this essay has shown that the two very similar romantic poets, Byron and Wordsworth have conveyed their ideas of mysterious beauty through poetry in many strict ways. The structure of their poems has shown how both poems are very regular and have a strict orderly rhyming scheme. The use of certain language features has given the poems a more in depth understanding and this has been shown in both the first lines and parts of the poems referring to beauty. The first lines have also grasped the reader by not giving away the whole meaning of the poem. The characters of both ladies in the poems have shown that perhaps one could have been a prostitute and the other maybe a ghost. Finally physical imagery in the poems has shown that both poets differ on how they picture beauty and this is shown through their poetry.

Compare and contrast the two poems 'Slough' and 'Composed Upon Westminster Bridge'.
"I preferred 'Composed Upon Westminster Bridge' rather than 'Slough' as I found that the poem was very calming and tranquil. It was short, easy to read and easy to understand. The ways that Wordsworth described the place made the poem shine because it was made to sound really peaceful and beautiful. I was able to create a vision of a place that seemed non-existent, or far out of our reach, but Wordsworth really captures the beauty.
