BEGINNING my studies, the first step pleasd me so much,
The mere fact, consciousnessthese formsthe power of motion,
The least insect or animalthe senseseyesightlove;
The first step, I say, awd me and pleasd me so much,
I have hardly gone, and hardly wishd to go, any farther,
But stop and loiter all the time, to sing it in extatic songs.
