Thomas Moore wrote a book called The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life. He speaks of the soul's need for enchantment in this quote....
"...To make local nature a concrete element in daily life is a necessary initial step in the re-enchantment of our individual lives...Enchantment is to a large extent founded in the spirituality inherent in earthly nature...Our task is to re-expand our very idea of spirituality to include the lowliest of things and the most particular and familiar haunts of nature."
Don't you remember playing with earthworms, putting flowers in your hair, climbing trees, catching fireflies, combing each others hair, laughing at the silliest things till your side hurt, watching the stars at night while laying in the grass?
I you....? We all crave enchantment repeatedly, even if we are grown up.....
