A summary of a classic William Wordsworth poem about London

William Wordsworth’s sonnet ‘Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802’ is one of his most celebrated poems. Here is the poem, and a few words by way of analysis:

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning: silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
