Background

A description of the experience

William Wordsworth – the Inner Vision

Most sweet it is with unuplifted eyes
To pace the ground, if path there be or none,
While a fair region round the traveller lies
Which he forbears again to look upon.

Pleased rather with some soft ideal scene
The work of fancy, or some happy tone
Of meditation, slipping in between
The beauty coming and the beauty gone.

If thought and love desert us, from that day
Let us break off all commerce with the muse;
With thought and love companions of our way

Whate'er the senses take or may refuse,
The mind's internal heaven shall shed her dews
Of inspiration on the humblest lay

The source of the experience
