"All look and likeness caught from earth,
All accident of kin and birth,
Had pass'd away. There was no trace
Of aught on that illumined face,
Uprais' d beneath the rifted stone
But of one spirit all her own; -
She, she herself, and only she,
Shone through her body visibly."
  Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Selected Poetry, London: Penguin Books, 1996, p. 185.
