Of possible sublimity

“. . . I would stand,


If the night blackened with a coming storm,


Beneath some rock, listening to notes that are


The ghostly language of the ancient earth,


Or make their dim abode in distant winds.


Thence did I drink the visionary power;


And deem not profitless those fleeting moods


Of shadowy exultation: not for this,


That they are kindred to our purer mind


And intellectual life; but that the soul,


Remembering how she felt, but what she felt


Remembering not, retains an obscure sense


Of possible sublimity. . . .”


William Wordsworth


Leaving on my vacation this weekend !! YAY !
