In my opinion, I think this poem is about modern world and nature. In this poem,modern world means "material world" and this poem also means that people who in modern world pay much attention to material things and neglect the nature.The world is surrounded by material things and people's heart is coverd by material things. So,"This sea that bares her bosom to the moon,The winds that will be howling at all hours,And are up-gatherednow like sleeping flower,"are described in order to arouse people's attention to nature.And the nature protest the neglect of people. Everything is out of tune(order).People are preoccupied with material things.So,it seems that there is too much with us in modern world because in modern world people don't notice the nature. Maybe it is because industrial world bring mateial world. People suck in material world and forget how wonderful the nature is . So, the writer would rather be" A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn".It means that "the previous world". In previous world, the industry is not so well-developing and not so important. So the world is not so material. The writer want to arouse people's attention to nature and remind people don't pay much attention to material world. You can enjoy the industrial world and appreciate the nature scenery at the same time. Then you can see how wonderfulthe nature is and how magic the nature is.Previos world also means that the nature is not polluted yet.The industrial world will bring the pollution of nature too.
