    Nature and love were a major themes of ROMANTICISM works favoured by 18th and 19th century poets such as Lord Byron, Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Keats. Emphasis in such poetry is placed on the personal experiences of the individual.

    There is no set number of stanzas/lines or a particular rhyme scheme in romanticism poetry.

    Example by Percy Bysshe Shelley:

    excerpt from The Question

    I dreamed that, as I wandered by the way,
    Bare Winter suddenly was changed to Spring,
    And gentle odours led my steps astray,
    Mixed with a sound of waters murmuring
    Along a shelving bank of turf, which lay
    Under a copse, and hardly dared to fling
    Its green arms round the bosom of the stream,
    But kissed it and then fled, as thou mightest in dream.
