Background

A description of the experience

The Poems of James Russell Lowell

I feel the bandages unroll
That bound my inward seeing
Freed are the bright wings of my soul
Types of my god like being;
High thoughts are swelling in my heart
And rushing through my brain
May I never more lose part
In my soul’s realm again;

…….

No more my spirit can be shaken
From its calm and kingly rest
Love hath shed its light around me
Love hath pierced the shades that bound me
Mine eyes are opened, I can see
The universe’s mystery
The mighty heart and core
Of After and before
I see and I am weak no more
Upward! Upward evermore
To heaven’s open gate I soar
