Wordsworth is a poet whose connection with the natural world was cardinal to his poetry. One can feel often in his perception of the outdoor world, a soul enhanced by the very act of seeing. Much of this seeing was done in walking. And his famous definition of poetry as ' the overflow of powerful emotion recollected in tranquillity' hints that that powerful emotion came often through seeing and being in the natural world.
