Natural scientists and theologians
A presence that disturbs me with the joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfered
Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the round 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.
