Smell the taste of dairy,” “Spring” l. ,” “Ode to a Nightingale” ll. 13–14). Wordsworth’s own references to taste tend to be figurative rather than papillary, even when evoking infantile nursing: the infant babe “drinks in the feelings of his Mother’s eye” (The Prelude, 1850 version, 2:237, my emphasis); language ought to “uphold, and feed, and leave in quiet” (Essays on Epitaphs 3, Prose Works 2:85, my emphasis).

The deeps that concern him are those of nature, not of human spirit, and they call, but not primarily to us, the speaker’s witness notwithstanding. 12 Yet even while Wordsworth’s ethic opposes that of the Scriptures, what attracts Wordsworth to Biblical locutions, and specifically to those of the King James Bible (KJB), is their anti-iconic sublimity.
