The lunatic, the lover, and the poetAre the imagination all compact.One sees more devils than vast he’ll can hold,That si the madmen: the lover, al as frantic,Sees Helena’s beauty in a brow of Egypt:The poet’s eye, in a fine frenzy rolling,Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;And as imagination bodies forthThe forms of things unknown, the poet’s penTurns then to shapes, and gives to airy nothingA local habitation and a name.Such tricks hath strong imagination,That if it would but apprehend some joy;It comprehends some bringer of that joy;Or in the nigt, imaginating some fear,How easy is a bush supposed a bear!
