Beauty beyond reason

24 Apr 2022 | Holy Spirit | 0 comments

… here you stand,

adore and worship, when you know it not,

pious beyond the intention of your thought,

devout above the meaning of your will.

Yes, you have felt, and may not cease to feel,

The estate of man would be indeed forlorn

If false conclusions of the reasoning power

Made the eye blind, and closed the passages

Through which the ear converses with the heart.


William Wordsworth (1770-1850).
