The whole poem is really an extended metaphor of romantic love. Nature figures heavily into the romantic elements of the poem. Consider the first stanza:

Come live with me and be my love, And we will all the pleasures prove, That Valleys, groves, hills, and fields, Woods, or steepy mountain yields. Notice the word pleasures followed by the natural imagery mixed with personification.
