Inspirational or crazy

Romantics viewed nature as a way to see the divine. They were so in awe of the power of nature. Today, this statement would probably label someone as a hippy or crazy. Although poets write about nature even today, I feel as if someone today would say “nature has its own spirit,” they would be scoffed at. Like Ashley said in class, I definitely agree with what they are saying though: walking around in nature does inspire an individual to see the beauty in the world. Back then, they were so used to poets writing beautifully about nature and frilly things but not comfortable with death or sex (or drugs and rock and roll. LOL. No? Okay.) Romantics were basically a bunch of pansies (like the flower...which is nature...LOL again...alright.) **Comment if you think I'm witty!!!**
