This is one of the poems that comprised part of DGR's letter to his brother of 18 October 1849, sent from Paris on his trip to the continent with Holman Hunt. WMR later gathered the set of verses written during the trip into an integral sequence.
The poem was first published by WMR in his Family
and first collected in his edition of 1911.
