Intimations of Immortality

Find talks and articles

By William Wordsworth

These lines from Intimations of Immortality were especially loved by Phiroz

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:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home.
