Just reminded of Coleridge's famous lines from 'Dejection: An Ode':
 
 "O Lady! we receive but what we give,
  And in our life alone does Nature live:
  Ours is her wedding-garment, ours her shroud!"

Indeed!  "Lilac and star and bird" -- "the fragrant pines, and the cedars dusk and dim".
 
Thank you, Peter.
