Review on “Three Years She Grew in Sun and Shower” by William Wordswor

Book Review   by:akso6o175     Original Author: Andy Kester Sawian
ª
 
Wordsworth testified his true attitude of Nature. According to him, Nature is a heavenly spirit who has the combined qualities of a mother and a teacher. He observed and drew the picture of how Mother Nature raised Lucy up; moulded and shaped her life till she becomes a fine young beautiful lady. Right from the time she was three years old, Mother Nature proposed to begin Lucy’s education in her own natural wisdom.
From the day she was born till the day she was three years old, Lucy grew under the light and the heat of the sun and the showers of the soft summer rain. Then Mother Nature said to her that there was no flower lovelier than Lucy that has ever been sown on earth; here Lucy is compared to a flower because of her beauty and the natural way in which she was bred in. Mother Nature decided to take full charge of Lucy’s life and well being and would educate her according to nature’s own ideal. Nature would be to Lucy a source of inspiration for both law; rules of nature; and impulse; inspiring emotions, and with her Lucy would learn about the secrets of the mountains and plains, the wisdom of heaven and earth, in glade; a clear open space and bower; shady place under trees. She would learn to feel an overseeing power to rouse and control.
Lucy would be playful and merry like a young deer with that wild and tameless joy. Full of energy to go high up as the water spring on top of the mountain; a source of a river. Lucy would possess that gentle breeze that would act as a soothing and healing balm for her wounds. She would also learn to be silent and calm with the silent inanimate objects of nature. The silent floating clouds that pass by would lend their dignity and grandeur to her. For her the willow trees would bend; refers to the fact that Lucy would learn modesty from the bending branches of the willow. Even in the strong movement of the storm; which symbolizes power and gracefulness; Lucy would learn to be powerful and graceful like the storm at the same time. Yet in silence, without Lucy being conscious of it, she would ultimately be moulded into a fine young lady.
In the process, Lucy would someday display all her true beauty like the stars in the sky on a cloudless midnight. She would be loved and close to them and would listen carefully in many secret places of nature. The secret places where the rivulets dance their wayward round with their streams of clear rushing waters. Their beauty was born with a soft murmuring sound that would beautify her and make her face beautiful. The vital invigorating and lovely feelings of delight would bring up the nourishment in her to a grandeur height. Her virgin breast would expand on bulge out. As long as Lucy dwells with Mother Nature in this joyful valley, she would shape Lucy’s thoughts to the height of maturity.
At last Mother Nature spoke and said that the work of educating Lucy was finally done. How soon was Lucy’s race in her life’s journey run? ; Lucy’s duration of life was compared to a race which has a beginning and an end. When she died all that she left to the narrator was the heath; barren land, the calm and quiet scene. The memory of what would always be perhaps suggestive to the fact that this work of nature would never be repeated in future.
