    Silently as A Dream The Fabric Rose

    Silently as a dream the fabric rose.
    No sound of hammer or of saw was there.
    Ice upon ice, the well-adjusted parts
    Were soon conjoined, nor other cement ask'd
    Than water inter-fused to make them one.

    ........... though smooth
    And slipp'ry the materials, yet frost-bound
    Firm as a rock. Nor wanted aught within,
    That royal residence might well befit,
    For grandeur or for use. Long wavy wreaths
    Of flow'rs, that fear'd no enemy but warmth,
    Blush'd on the panels.

    Mirror needed none, where all was vitreous; but in order due
    Convivial table and commodious seat
    (What seem'd at least commodious seat) were there;
    Sofa, and couch, and high-built throne august.
    The same lubricity was found in all,
    And all was moist to the warm touch; a scene
    Of evanescent glory, once a stream,
    And soon to slide into a stream again.

    text : William Cowper, The Task, 1785, Book V

    from Wiki : The Task is A Poem, in Six Books that are called: "The Sofa", "The Timepiece", "The Garden", "The Winter Evening", "The Winter Morning Walk" and "The Winter Walk at Noon".
    Cowper's subjects are those that occur to him naturally in the course of his reflections rather than being suggested by poetic convention, and the diction throughout is, for an 18th-century poem, unusually conversational and unartificial. As the poet himself writes:
    " raptures are not conjured up to serve occasions of poetic pomp, but genuine."
    Lady Austen, a friend of Cowper's in the early 1780s that was fond of blank verse, suggested a poem of that kind to the Author, and gave him the SOFA for a subject.
