‘These fancies, and such as these, have always given to my meditations among the mountains, and the forests, by the rivers and the ocean, a tinge  of what the every-day world would not fail to term the fantastic. My wanderings amid such scenes have been many, and far-searching, and often solitary; and the interest with which I have strayed through many a dim deep valley, or gazed into the reflected Heaven of many a bright lake, has been an interest greatly deepened by the thought that I have strayed and gazed alone. What flippant Frenchman was it who said, “Solitude is a lovely thing, but you need someone else to tell you so?” The epigram cannot be gainsayed; but the necessity is a thing that does not exist.’

So blended bank and shadow there,
That each seemed pendulous in air.
