On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
Out of the day and night
A joy has taken flight:
Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar (R)
Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight
No more -Oh, never more! (A) Facts about Percy Shelley http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/a-lament/ http://www.shmoop.com/percy-bysshe-shelley/timeline.html No, Music, thou art not the 'food of Love.' (M)
Unless Love feeds upon its own sweet self,
Till it becomes all Music murmurs of. (P) Another Fragment to Music Good Night Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill (O)
Which severs those it should unite;
Let us remain together still,
Then it will be a good night.
How can I call he lone night good,
Though thy sweet wishes wing its flight? (P)
Be it not said, thuoght, understood --
Then it will be -- good night.
To hearts which near each other move (P)
From evening close to morning light,
The night is good; because, my love,
They never say good-night. http://www.poemhunter.com/i/ebooks/pdf/percy_bysshe_shelley_2004_9.pdf http://www.neuroticpoets.com/shelley/ (lyirc poem)
