Background

A description of the experience

Percy Bysshe Shelley

I were as in my boyhood and could be
The comrade of thy wanderings over heaven,
As then, when to outstrip the skyey speed
Scarce seemed a vision, I would never have striven
As thus with thee in prayer in my sore need.
O lift me as a wave, a leaf, a cloud,
I fall upon the thorns of life!
I bleed!
