Trailing Clouds of Glory!

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:    
Heaven lies about us in our infancy!    
Shades of the prison-house begin to close upon the growing Boy,    
But he beholds the light, and whence it flows,       
He sees it in his joy;    
The Youth, who daily farther from the east must travel, still is Nature’s priest,     
And by the vision splendid is on his way attended;     
At length the Man perceives it die away,    
And fade into the light of common day.
