Fancy is the power That first unsensualizes the dark mind, Giving it new delights; and bids it swell With wild activity; and peopling air By obscure fears of beings invisible, Emancipates it from the grosser thrall Of the present impulse, teaching self-control, Till Superstition with unconscious hand Seat Reason on her throne.
