This poem is an example of pastoral poetry. The poem was greatly influenced by Wordsworth's actual surroundings, but was probably not actually autobiographical. As a Romantic poet, Wordsworth was greatly influenced by the beauty of nature which inspired the image of the girl in the field. The poem may also have been influenced by "Tour in Scotland" by Thomas Wilkinson.
