I urgently need to express in words the following diagram which illustrates the process of poetic creation.
1. sensory experience. 2. emotion 3. recollection in tranquillity. 4 contemplation of emotion. 5. production of kindred emotion. 6. poetry.
The sensory experience, for example the sight of the daffodils, sets the poet's visionary power in action. Thus the poet recollects and contemplates past emotion and recreates a kindred emotion
thanks to the subjectivity of memory (through memory?)
Do you have a specific poem in mind? If so, what is it?
A diagram usually is something visual. We see no visual here.
