Anima Poetae

Anima Poetae From the Unpublished Note-books of Samuel Taylor Coleridge By Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Ernest Hartley Coleridge:

"IF a man could pass through Paradise in a dream and have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his soul had really been there and if he found that flower in his hand when he awoke... Aye and what then?"

Stu is on a roll today!

This is a truly a lovely quote, Pattie! I shall probably spend some time attempting to answer the question.

A lovely query, but I think I might be concerned I'd passed through Paradise and where was I now?
