‘A slumber did my spirit seal…’

…from the quills of the dead white poets

William Wordsworth (1770 – 1850)

 A slumber did my spirit seal;

I had no human fears:

She seemed a thing that could not feel

The touch of earthly years.

No motion has show now, no force;

She neither hears nor sees;

Rolled round in earth’s diurnal course,

with rocks, and stones, and trees.
