Background

A description of the experience

William Cowper – The Task

 
Tell me ye shining hosts
That navigate a sea that knows no storms
Beneath a vault unsullied with a cloud
If from your elevation, whence ye view
Distinctly scenes invisible to man
And systems, of whose birth no tidings yet
Have reached this nether world, ye spy a race
Favour’d as ours; transgressors from the womb;
And hasting to a grave yet doom’d to rise
