A description of the experience

Edgar Allan Poe –  From To One in Paradise (1833)

For, alas! alas! me
    The light of Life is o’er!
    “No more — no more — no more-”
(Such language holds the solemn sea
    To the sands upon the shore)
Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree
    Or the stricken eagle soar!

And all my days are trances,
    And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
    And where thy footstep gleams —
In what ethereal dances,
    By what eternal streams.

The source of the experience
