The romantic poetry generally means poems related to nature. The poems in which there is an appraisal of nature, or where the poet addresses nature , is called romantic poetry. The characteristic of romantic poetry is that it will contain the sensuousness, imagery, personification stc.

sensuousness:- in this the poet strikes you through your senses.

imagery:- in this the poet makes u feel one thing through different images.

personification:- personification is the figure of speech in which any inanimate object is given the properties of an animate object such as my pen was shedding its tears.

  The romantic poetry movement took place in the early 1800's.  Poems born of this movement commonly possess similar characteristics, including:

Emphasis on Emotion.  These poems are often deal wholly, or in part, with emotional experiences.

Active Imaginations - The characters that fill these poems are often largely lead by their imaginations and the worlds described in these poems are often highly whimsical.

Intuition - Characters in romantic poems often allow intuition to lead them, following their basic instincts more often than not.
