Background

A description of the experience

Festus - I - Philip James Bailey

Seraphim, worshipping.
As flames in skies
We burn and rise,
And lose ourselves in thee;
Years on years,
And nought appears
Save God to be.
To us no thought
Hath Being brought
Towards thee that doth not move.
Years on years,
And what appears
Save God to love?
All thou dost make
Lies like a lake
Below thine infinite eye;
Years on years,
And all appears
Save God, to die.
