Background

A description of the experience

Festus - I - Philip James Bailey

Dominations.
Between creation and destruction, now
The lull of creatural action intervenes.
God rests;
and the world is working out its week.
His hand is in his bosom, and at peace.

But what was gradually create shall be
Most suddenly unmade.
That arm which now slumbers upon his breast
shall yet wave forth;
And from the lightning pathway of his feet
The aethereal web, world--studded, of the skies
Like to the gossamer woof, beaded with dew,
Stretched o'er the morning traveller's walk,
shall pass
Annihilate,
and for ever.

For behold!
His oath uncancellable on heaven's altar rests;
The whole shall end.

All matter, erst conceived of God the eternal, and the virgin void,
The firmament of material worlds, shall cease.
