The following untitled poem on a separate letterpress page by Lewis Morris accompanies the plate Old Houses, Chiavenna:

Age muses, muses always
On that which once has been,
Recalling years long ended,
And vanished visions splended;
The throb, the flush of old days,
When all the world was green.

Lewis Morris.

This photograph, from a series of Italian scenes, was originally taken in either 1885 or 1886 by Roome.
