Pleasure and rapture

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
– Lord Byron, British Poet (1788–1824)

The “Byron’s Grotto” in Porto Venere, Italy, named in his honour, because he meditated here and drew inspiration from this place for his literary works.
