Swedenborgian

An angel (Swedenborg explains)
When it comes stepping down the planes
Must put its intellect away
And clothe the things it wants to say
In such imagery as it finds
In our cramped and dated human minds.

And thus the thoughts that filter through
No more accurately represent
The truth than matchstick models do
The actual Houses of Parliament.
