  • Eager to search the dense, divine and green
    Forest, to know it, both inside and out,
    This place through which the new day could be seen
    With splendour tempered, while from all about
    Fragrance converged on me, I left the bank
    Without the guidance of a word or sign
    From Virgil, and with my own will to thank
    I made my slow way in a level line
    Across the ground. A sweet unchanging air
    Fondled my brow, the soft force of a breeze
