Give two quotations to show the solitary nature of Lucy Gray in Wordsworth's "Lucy Gray"?

lit24 | Student

1. "No mate, no comrade Lucy knew;
She dwelt on a wide moor."
These two lines clearly state that Lucy had no friends and lived a very lonely life on the open countryside.

2.She wandered up and down;
And many a hill did Lucy climb:
But never reached the town
These lines capture poignantly the loneliness of the little girl Lucy who was trapped all alone in the blinding snow storm which covered the whole moor. These lines vividly describe the trauma of the lonely girl as she climbed up and down many hills in her futile search for a safe passage out of the storm.
