A description of the experience

Bricks without Mortar – The Selected Poems of Hartley Coleridge

Till death no longer seemed a terrible thing
But like a blithe and long wished holiday
That frees the spirit weary of the school
And discipline of earth, once more to join
The friends and kindred of their happy home
While the All-Father with a look benign
Praises the task, imperfect though it be
And blesses all in their love and His own

The source of the experience

Coleridge, David Hartley
