Wordsworth, William - Lines at Grasmere
Type of spiritual experience
A description of the experience
William Wordsworth – Lines at Grasmere
A power is passing from the earth
To breathless Nature’s dark abyss
But when the great and good depart
What is it more than this -
That man, who is from God sent forth
Doth yet again to God return?
Such ebb and flow must ever be;
Then wherefore should we mourn?
