Background

A description of the experience

John Clare– from the Everyman's poetry collection

 As a bud green in Spring,
As a rose blown in June
Thy beauty looked out
And departed as soon
Heaven saw thee too fair
For earth's tenants of clay
And ere age did thee wrong
Thou wert summoned away

The source of the experience

Clare, John
