Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood

Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:  
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
        Hath had elsewhere its setting,  
          And cometh from afar…

THERE was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,  
    The earth, and every common sight,  
            To me did seem  
    Apparell'd in celestial light,  
The glory and the freshness of a dream.  
It is not now as it hath been of yore;—  
        Turn wheresoe'er I may,  
            By night or day,  
The things which I have seen I now can see no more.
