A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet mornings of
spring which I enjoy with my whole heart. I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this
spot, which was created for the bliss of souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so
absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere tranquil existence, that I neglect my talents.

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I
never was a greater artist than now.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the
upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into
the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream; and, as I
lie close to the earth, a thousand unknown plants are noticed by me: when I hear the buzz of
the little world among the stalks, and grow familiar with the countless indescribable forms of
the insects and fies, then I feel the presence of the Almighty, who formed us in his own
image, and the breath of that universal love which bears and sustains us, as it foats around
us in an eternity of bliss; and then, my friend, when darkness overspreads my eyes, and
heaven and earth seem to dwell in my soul and absorb its power, like the form of a beloved
mistress, then I often think with longing, Oh, would I could describe these conceptions, could
impress upon paper all that is living so full and warm within me, that it might be the mirror of
my soul, as my soul is the mirror of the infnite God!

O my friend — but it is too much for my strength — I sink under the weight of the splendour of
these visions! A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul, like these sweet
mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

I am alone, and feel the charm of existence in this spot, which was created for the bliss of
souls like mine. I am so happy, my dear friend, so absorbed in the exquisite sense of mere
