The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star (from Ode. Intimations of Immortality)

by William Wordsworth


Original Language English

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.

-- from Complete Poetical Works, by William Wordsworth
