Not Another Mountain Metaphor

The sun, pouring down mellow gold,
seemed to be shining only for them,
and the wind gave them voice;
but the gestures of their outstretched
arms appeared wholly independent of the wind,
and impressed one with a solemn awe
that overbore all our knowledge of causes,
and brought us into the condition
of being newly arrived from some other world.
