Read the lines from Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey."

The sounding cataract
Haunted me like a passion: the tall rock,
The mountain, and the deep and gloomy wood,
Their colours and their forms, were then to me
An appetite: a feeling and a love,
That had no need of a remoter charm,
By thought supplied, or any interest
Unborrowed from the eye.—

Which of these best describes the speaker's relationship to nature in these lines?

1.physical
2.emotional
3.spiritual
4.intellectual
