Background

A description of the experience

Gerard Manley Hopkins – from The Starlight Night

Down in  dim woods the diamond delves! The elves'- eyes!
The grey lawns cold where gold, where quickgold lies!
Wind-beat whitebeam! Airy abeles set on a flare!
Flake-doves sent floating forth at a farmyard scare! -
Ah well! It is all a purchase, all is a prize
