    Once when I was young I felt enthused
    By something otherworldly that infused
    In me a sacred radiance not seen
    But felt, a glorious aura, holy sheen,
   That ever after lingered in my soul,
    A glint of what had once made me feel whole.

   It filled me with a warmth of loving care,
    A Spirit I felt galvanized to share,
    Electric in its animating charge
    That seemed to make my glowing heart enlarge.

    That transcendental episode remains
    A guiding light and even now explains
    My fascination with ethereal things
    From which verse such as this mystically springs.
