„As I go musing through this mournful land
Soothed by the pine-tree's solemn harmony,
Thy well-loved image comes and walks by me.
I seem to hold thee by the gentle hand
And talk of things I dimly understand,
That thy dear spirit set to mine may be
As to an intricate lock the simple key.“

XXXII. "As I go musing through this mournful land"
Love Sonnets http://www.sonnets.org/love-sonnets.htm (1889)
