In the first portion of the poem, the author discusses how it has been five years since he came to this place that leaves him in awe of its nature. The author hears, "These waters, rolling from their mountain-springs With a soft inland murmur" (Wordsworth 3-4).
The author describes how as he was by himself in towns and cities, he remembered the beautiful scene of nature that he once had seen before, and he realizes that "On that best portion of a good man's life; His little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love" are what matter the most in life (34--36).
The author recalls his time with nature and how joyful it was even when he is depressed and lonely. He remembers the past so "That in this moment there is life and food for future years" (65--66). The author is overwhelmed the love and appreciation for the wondrous sight he once saw in nature.
The author describes how the rolling green hills are still a big part of his happiness, although he hasn’t been at the site for a while. “Therefore am I still/A lover of the meadows and the woods,/And mountains; and of all that we behold/From this green earth” (Wordsworth 103-106).
The author asks that Mother Earth should embrace his sister who was his dear friend. He asked the moon to shine on her and so his sister can truly enjoy nature, saying, “Therefore let the moon/Shine on thee in thy solitary walk;/And let the misty mountain winds be free/To blow against thee” (Wordsworth 135-138).
The author wanted his sister to experience his love of nature and remember the times they had together at this spot, even when he is long gone. He says, “That on the banks of this delightful stream/We stood together; and that I, so long/A worshipper of Nature, hither came” (Wordsworth 151-153).
