as I do before sitting down to write,
with the spruces on either hand and the green meadows beyond.
I tramp along thanking the Lord for a life so sweet.

This may not be LMM's Prince Edward Island, but it the country of my childhood and is deeply fixed in my soul! Because of that I understand Maud's sentiment.
We may be kindred spirits, Maud and I.
