Words that make me happy...

"...the moon
Emerging, hath awakened earth and sky
With one sensation, and those wakeful birds
Have all burst forth in choral minstrelsy,
As if some sudden gale had swept at once
A hundred airy harps!..."
--Coleridge's "The Nightingale" (1798)

Just needed something to make me feel a little happier. To me, this is one of the most glorious moments in poetry. I never tire of reading it.
