I need help with these questions: In the poem "The world is too much with us" does the speaker believe we have lost or love of nature. I believe the statement is true, and also, In William Blakes tyger is he powerful, good, powerless, or bad, I put powerful. Thanks for your help.

You have to ask yourself if you think tigers can be "good" or "bad" by human standards. Probably not, since that takes thought and knowledge of right and wrong -- and since tigers are not humans, those are probably ridiculous adjectives to apply. So you are left with "powerful" and "powerless." What do you think?
