1. "Iniziai a camminare pensieroso per le strade di Londra, sperando forse di poterla rivedere almenoun'ultima volta ancora. Camden Town, King's Cross St Pancras, Green Park e così Embankment eSt Jame's Park; lungo il Thames nel parco del Greenwich observatory e poi ancora a Bank: Londrasembrava diventare triste e vuota.Anche London Bridge, Knights Bridge o Millennium Bridge, sembravano essersi spogliati delloro fascino, come accadde per Backingham Palace e Westminster Palace. Era davvero giunta l'oradi lasciare l'Inghilterra."

4. "To SolitudeO solitude! if I must with thee dwell,Let it not be among the jumbled heapOf murky buildings; climb with me the steep,—Nature's observatory—whence the dell,Its flowery slopes, its river's crystal swell,May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep'Mongst boughs pavillion'd, where the deer's swift leapStartles the wild bee from the fox-glove bell.But though I'll gladly trace these scenes with thee,Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind,Whose words are images of thoughts refin'd,Is my soul's pleasure; and it sure must beAlmost the highest bliss of human-kind,When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee."
Author: John Keats
