A description of the experience

William Blake – from The Complete Poems

In Eden Females sleep the winter in soft silken veils

Woven by their own hands to hide them in the darksome grave

But Males immortal live renewed by female deaths, in soft

Delight they die and they revive in spring with music and songs

The source of the experience

Blake, William
