Reverence for the natural world is a motif that is used in this poem. Coleridge was one of the foremost romantic poets of his time. He revered the natural world and this is made clear in this poem. The natural and the metaphysical world become an extension of each other in this poem. The tone is full of supernatural awe and tragedy.
