IN TUNE WITH THE INFINITE

From "The Merchant of Venice," Act V, sc. 1

 

How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!

Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music

Creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night

Become the touches of sweet harmony.

Sit, Jessica. Look how the floor of heaven

Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold:

There's not the smallest orb which thou beholds't

But in his motion like an angel sings,

Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubims;

Such harmony is an immortal souls;

But whilst this muddy vesture of decay

Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.

William Shakespeare, 1564-1616
