Background

A description of the experience

Percy Bysshe Shelley

I can not give what men call love;
But wilt thou accept not
The worship the heart lifts above
And the Heavens reject not;
The desire of the moth for the star,
Of the night for the morrow
The devotion to something afar
From the sphere of our sorrow?

The source of the experience
