It is a lonesome Glee —
Yet sanctifies the Mind —
With fair association —
Afar upon the Wind

A Bird to overhear
Delight without a Cause —
Arrestless as invisible —
A matter of the Skies.

    It’s me who sings to nature,
    Only nature listens to me;
    Nature is not lonely,
    And lonely is not me.

    Is there any similarity?
