Background

A description of the experience

Samuel Taylor Coleridge – The Complete Poems
From Untitled

Upon the mountain's Edge all lightly resting
There a brief while the Globe of splendour sits
And seems a creature of this earth; but soon
More changeful than the Moon
To Wane fantastic his great orb submits,
Or cone or mow of Fire, till sinking slowly
Even to a Star at length he lessens wholly

Abrupt, as Spirits vanish, he is sunk
A soul like breeze possesses all the wood;
The Boughs, the sprays have stood
As motionless, as stands the ancient Trunk
But every leaf through all the forest flutters
And deep the Cavern of the Fountain mutters

The source of the experience

Coleridge, Samuel Taylor
