Colophon: "Thomas Traherne (1636 - 1674), the son of a Hereford shoemaker, attended Oxford University, then took holy orders and became the domestic chaplain in the household of the Lord Keeper of the Seals of England. He led a quiet life, reflecting on the world around him. "In his poems Traherne delights in the power and sacredness of nature and shows his awareness of the epiphanies that can occur during the state of childhood. His poems reveal some of the mystical flashes of truth to be found in the commonplace. "The text is based on the 1910 edition of Poems of Felicity, retaining much of Traherne's idiosyncratic spelling."
