行く雁の・啼くとき宙の・感ぜられ

ゆくかりの・なくときちゅうの・かんぜられ

The call of wild geese returning: the impression of the sense of space.

山口誓子・1947

—-

Adapted from the notes:

感ぜられ is from 感ず, the classical equivalent of 感じる. The passive form of the verb implies that the feeling arose spontaneously, and the speaker neither intended nor expected it.
