A description of the experience

EAST COKER - (No. 2 of 'Four Quartets') - T.S. Eliot

The chill ascends from feet to knees,
The fever sings in mental wires.
If to be warmed, then I must freeze
And quake in frigid purgatorial fires
Of which the flame is roses, and the smoke is briars

The source of the experience
