The following untitled poem on a separate letterpress page by Matthew Arnold accompanies the plate The Jungfrau:

Blow, ye winds! lift me with you!
I come to the wild.
Fold closely, O Nature!
Thine arms round thy child.

To thee only God granted
A heart ever new ⎯
To all always open,
To all always true.

Ah! calm me, restore me;
And dry up my tears
On thy high mountain-platforms,
Where morn first appears;

Where the white mists, for ever,
Are spread and upfurl’d ⎯
In the stir of the forces
Whence issued the world.

Matthew Arnold.
