...Visionary power
Attends upon the motions of the winds
Embodies in the mystery of words;
There darkness makes abode, and all the host
Of shadowy things fo work their changes there
As in a mansion like their proper home.
Even forms and substances are circumfused
By that transparent veil with light divine,
And through the turnings intricate of verse
Present themselves as objects recognized
In flashes, and with glory scarce their own.

Wordsworth, The Prelude (1805)
