"And I have felt a spirit which disturbs me," by William Wordsworth

Transcription of the Poem

" ------------- And I have felt                   
A spirit which disturbs me with the joy         
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime         
Of something far more deeply interfused     
Whose dwelling is the light of letting suns,  
And the sound ocean, and the living air,      
And the blue sky and in the mind of man;    
A motion and a spirit that impels                  
All thinking things, all objects of all thought,
And rolls through all things"
