Nature satisfies by its loveliness, and without any mixture of corporeal benefit. I see the spectacle of morning from the hilltop over against my house, from daybreak to sunrise, with emontions which an angel might share. The long slender bars of cloud float like fishes in the sea of crimson light. From the earth, as a shore, I look out into that silent sea. I seem to partake its rapid transformations; the active enchantment reachs my dust, and I dilate and comspire with the morning wind. How does nature deify us with a few and cheap elements? Give me health and a day, and I will make the pomp of emperors ridiculous. The dawn is my Assyria; the sunset and moonrise my Paphos, and unimaginable realms of faerie; broad noon shall be my England of the senses and the understanding; the night shall be my Germany of mystic philosophy and dreams.
自然的悦人是因其可爱，不掺杂任何物欲之念。从我房屋前的山顶，我观看壮美的晨景，从拂晓一直到日出，如此情境或许天使亦有同感。丝丝柔云飘渺浮动，宛若鱼儿畅游于霞光之海。从岸一般的大地上，我眺望平静的云海。天色瞬息万变，我也心神投入其中。云蒸霞蔚，逼我形骸，随着拂晓的风，我感到激情充溢于胸。自然之功，竟以了了晨风微云，使我们心神入定! 给我健康之躯，给我一天的时日，我就能够享受帝王的威严与盛隆。晨曦是我的亚述古国; 日落和明月是我梦想中怕弗仙境;正午是我感觉与理解中是英格兰;夜晚是我神秘哲思与梦境的德意志。
