Transcript of Nuns Fret Not

"In truth the prison, unto which we doom
Ourselves, no prison is:" "Nuns fret not at their convent's narrow room;
And hermits are contented with their cells;
And students with their pensive citadels;
Maids at the wheel, the weaver at his loom,
Sit blithe and happy; bees that soar for bloom,
High as the highest Peak of Furness-fells,
Will murmur by the hour in foxglove bells:" Nuns Fret Not Nuns fret not at their convent's narrow room;
And hermits are contented with their cells;
And students with their pensive citadels;
Maids at the wheel, the weaver at his loom,
Sit blithe and happy; bees that soar for bloom,
High as the highest Peak of Furness-fells,
Will murmur by the hour in foxglove bells:
In truth the prison, unto which we doom
Ourselves, no prison is: and hence for me,
In sundry moods, 'twas pastime to be bound
Within the Sonnet's scanty plot of ground;
Pleased if some Souls (for such there needs must be)
Who have felt the weight of too much liberty,
Should find brief solace there, as I have found. "and hence for me,
In sundry moods, 'twas pastime to be bound
Within the Sonnet's scanty plot of ground" "Pleased if some Souls (for such there needs must be)

By William Wordsworth Nuns, hermits, students, maids, weavers and bee's all do their jobs, and however tedious and constraining these jobs may seem, they value these jobs, which bring them happiness. Although we feel that restrictions most often confine us, the paradox of choice, reveals that too many choices is actually a bad thing- more isn't better. The "prison" which we doom ourselves too, is not actually a prison but a place of solace. Wordsworth uses the strict and confined structure of a sonnet to further demonstrate the meaning of his poem. Because of a sonnet's confining nature, people often feel that it limits creativity, however Wordsworth disagrees. He feels that the sonnet's "scanty plot of ground" provides him solace from "too much liberty" Wordsworth finds too much liberty to be a bad thing, he values constraint, and in a sense "walks the talk" by arguing his case in the form of a sonnet. fortress commanding a city Mountains in the English Lake District THANK YOU! various, diverse
