Glory glimmers

Glory glimmers, originally uploaded by colbyh.

There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,

The earth, and every common sight,
To me did seem
Appareled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
Heaven lies about us in our infancy;
Shades of the prison-house begin to close
Upon the growing boy,
But he beholds the light, and whence it flows.
He sees it in his joy;
At length the man perceives it die away,
And fade into the light of common day.
- William Wordsworth

Sweet Peaks, originally uploaded by colbyh. "Any great work of art... revives and readapts time and space,
and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you
an inhabitant of that world - the extent to which it invites you in
and lets you breathe its strange, special air."
