A description of the experience

William Ernest Henley – from Echoes

I am the Reaper
All things with heedful hook
Silent I gather.
Pale roses touched with spring
Tall corn in summer
Fruits rich with autumn, and frail winter blossoms –
Reaping still reaping –
All things with heedful hook
Timely I gather

The source of the experience
