A step, A single step, that freed me from the skirts Of the blind vapor, opened to my view Glory beyond all glory ever seen By waking sense or by the dreaming soul! The appearance, instantaneously disclosed Was of a mighty city,-boldly say A wilderness of building, sinking far And self-withdrawn into a boundless depth, Far sinking into splendor,-without end! Fabric it seemed of diamond and of gold, With alabaster domes, and silver spires, And blazing terrace upon terrace, high Uplifted; here, serene pavilions bright, In avenues disposed; there, towers begirt With battlements that on their restless fronts Bore stars,-illumination of all gems! The Excursion, Bk. II, W. WORDSWORTH.
