Comment 1 of 21, added on May 16th, 2005 at 2:23 AM.

There is a trend of Pantheism in the poem. The god LIFE, penetrates
everything. A positive karma coming back to you when you approach life in a
positive way.

An immense joy of living.

The theme of love that takes one beyond space and time.

The imagery of birds singing, stars dancing - are transcending elements
that give the poem an universal feeling.

Very Wordsworthian.

One of my favorite poems.
