This collection of poems ranges a wide topic of themes, from mortality to nature to the depiction of celestial love, but the main theme that carries throughout is spiritual enlightenment. The speaker is seeking throughout the pathway to union with the spiritual or celestial being, and finds the path through his examination of earthly love and a union with nature.
