XVIII. The Great Mystery
Lucy
By William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
 
A SLUMBER did my spirit seal;
  I had no human fears:
She seem’d a thing that could not feel
  The touch of earthly years.
 
No motion has she now, no force;        5
  She neither hears nor sees;
Roll’d round in earth’s diurnal course,
  With rocks, and stones, and trees.
