‘A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal’

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 she now, no force;

She neither hears nor sees,

Rolled round in earth’s diurnal course,

With rocks, and stones, and trees.
