A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy.
I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine.
I feel that I never was a greater artist than now. When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me.
Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could impress upon paper all that is living so full.
