See what a light is in those painted clouds!
Surely the man's immortal, who has wrought
This lovely picture with his hand and brain!
But at this thought
The glorious Sun in Heaven
Burst through a window-pane, and caught
The fringes of those clouds with such a light
That I fell back amazed -
To see that man
Made so much less immortal in my sight!
