Richard St. Victor has left us one very beautiful passage on the splendours of paradise.

They are ineffable and innumerable and no man having beheld them can fittingly narrate them or even remember them exactly. Nevertheless by naming over all the  beautiful things we know, we may draw upon the mind some vestige of heavenly splendour. 

Ezra Pound. Spirit of Romance 92.
