All Nature Has A Feeling

All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal: and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books;
There's nothing mortal in them; their decay
Is the green life of change; to pass away
And come again in blooms revivified.
Its birth was heaven, eternal it its stay,
And with the sun and moon shall still abide
Beneath their day and night and heaven wide.

it is important to save tree but poem i did not understand
I is good and interesting poem
Is the antepenultimate line correct? Should it now read...eternal is its stay? I'm aware that Clare used the Northamptonshire dialect often in his poems - perhaps that is correct in Northamptonshire at the time.
