Sonnet To Science

Science! true daughter of old time thou art!
Who alterest all things with thy peering eyes.
Why preyest thou thus upon the poet's heart,
Vulture, whose wings are dull realities?
How should he love thee? or how deem thee wise,
Who wouldst not leave him in his wandering,
To seek for treasured jewels in the skies,
Albeit he soared with an undaunted wing?
Hast though not dragged Dianna from her car?
And driven the Hamadryad from the wood
To seek shelter in some happier star?
Hast thou not torn the naid from her flood,
The Elfin from the grass, and from me
The summer dream beneath the tamarind tree?

Edgar Allen Poe

"There exists an agent, which is natural and divine, material and spiritual, a universal plastic mediator, a common receptical of the fluid vibrations of motion and the images of forms, a fluid, and a force, which can be called the Imagination of Nature..."
Elphias Levi
