Vastness ! and Age! and Memories of Eld !
Silence ! and Desolation ! and dim Night !
I feel ye now -- I feel ye in your strength
O spells more sure than e'er Judæan King
Taught in the gardens of Gethsemane !
O charms more potent than the rapt Chaldee
Ever drew down from out the quiet stars.

EDGAR A. POE.
