Specifically with reference to nature rather than to other things…  I would say that both poems show that Coleridge likes nature but also sees that nature can be violent and dangerous.For example, in “Rime” Coleridge mentions the beauty of the sun as it rises and sets — he makes it sound majestic.  His description of the iceberg is similar.  Yet at the same time, he has the ship punished by storms, which pursue it (it sounds like nature hates the ship).In “Kublai Khan” the rivers can meander and be beautiful.  But on the other hand, nature can be savage, with “ceaseless turmoil seething.”So it seems to me that Coleridge understands that nature can be beautiful and majestic, but very dangerous as well.
