A version of two lines from the opening 'Dedication' to Part I of Faust, a metaphysical tragedy by German polymath Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832):
YE wavering shapes, again ye do enfold me,
As erst upon my troubled sight ye stole;
Shall I this time attempt to clasp, to hold ye?
Still for the fond illusion yearns my soul?
