Mournful / Contemplative Full-Page Border With Statues more
This full-page decorative border features trees without leaves, presumably in Winter, and statues that from the context we know to be monuments on tombs. In the foreground is a lilly-pond.
In the book, the border contained a poem (in French, as is the whole book), translated as follows:
Go, my soul, refined and pure,
In the peaceful concert sing!
Go, thou sacred flower and bloom,
By the desert’s lonely spring!
Dreamer, seek they rest discreet
In the grotto’s calm retreat;
Hear, in shade, the voice of love;
Find, in gloom, the light of day—
Light that gleams with tender ray,
Voice that whispers from above.
