This in turn adheres to Abram's Romantic Formula. He was one of several poets of the time who restored emotion and feelings into poetry, and so was one of the first romantics. The curse could be seen in two ways, it could be that she is literally swearing but it could also mean that the unhappy girl is cursing or blaming the hard, cold world she is living in. William Wordsworth felt alarmed by the moral decline in England's society, and through this poem, ' London, 1802,' calls his generation back to a time of moral greatness, the kind embodied by John Milton. Blake's use of Black'ning could be symbolic; the church which should be a source of moral warmth and light, is seen as cold and dark. Romanticism was an artistic and intellectual movement that originated in the late 18th Century.
William Wordsworth and Paul Lance Dunbar did just that through their poetry. Even so, he praises Milton for his 'cheerful godliness,' and admits that Milton was willing to do humble work.

Sonnets are fourteen-line poetic inventions written in iambic pentameter. Sighs are also more likely to be heard at funerals than marriages, but here Blake mixes the two together. In contrast, people who spend a lot of time in nature, such as laborers and farmers, retain the purity and nobility of their souls. This finally concludes elements needed for Abram's Romantic Formula. For example, Wordsworth lived in the Lake District for most of his life and this inspired many of his poems.
During that time he fell in love with Annette Vallon. Our sun is a star, and without it, we would die. Your soul shone out as a star, and was set apart; You had a voice as powerful as the sea: As pure as the universe, majestic and free, did you travel through the common journey of life, In cheerfulness and godliness; but your heart Assigned itself the lowliest duties.
