A description of the experience

The Poems of James Russell Lowell

Whereto, in all our hearts, as to the sea
The streams of feeling do forever flow
Therefore it is that thy well meted praise
Falleth as shower like and fresh on me
Filling those springs which else had sunk full low
Lost in the dreary desert sands of woe
Or parched by passion’s fierce and withering blaze

The source of the experience

Lowell, James Russell
