Appreciation of poem Upon Westminster bridge class 11th
•About the poem, poet and title
The poem is written by William Wordsworth. The title of the poem is ‘Upon westminster bridge.
Nature poet Wordsworth was highly fascinated by the gorgeous beauty of London city during early morning sunrise taking a pause on the bridge while crossing Thames river, he began to girdle the enormous beauty of the city and it’s stunning silence in the early morning. He convincingly states that at this point of the day mingles with nature as a part of it. It’s his conviction that one has to be amused by reverence marvelling towards the supreme beauty of the city before him. The poet is enamoured by the grandeur of the different land marks of the London which are visible from the bridge. The poet is in bliss to find peace in the vibrant city in the wee ours of the day.
