Excerpt from Nepenthe by George Darley.

Shadowy aisles of pillared

trees
Now my errant fancy please,
Dim cathedral walks like these ;
Nave by numerous transepts crost,
Each in his own long darkness lost,
Cloister and chancel, thick embossed
Their roofs with pendant foliage, thro'
Whose fretted branchwork richly pours
The sun, in golden order due,
His bright mosaic on the floors.

    Here the experience of walking in a shadowed forest is compared to walking in a grand cathedral. He seems to be comparing the holiness of nature with that commemorative holiness built by man.
