The skies is short — the Clouds room mean.

A travel Flake the Snow

Across a Barn or through a Rut

Debates if it will certainly go —


A small Wind complains all Day

How some one treated him

Nature, favor Us, is sometimes caught

Without she Diadem.


‘O DREARY life,’ us cry, ‘O dreary life!’ 

And still the generations that the birds 

Sing v our sighing, and the flocks and herds 

Serenely live while us are maintaining strife 

With Heaven"s true objective in us, together a knife 

Against i beg your pardon we might struggle! ocean girds 

Unslackened the dry land, savannah-swards 

Unweary sweep,—hills watch, unworn; and also rife 

Meek leaves drop yearly from the forest-trees, 

To show over the unwasted stars that pass 

In their old glory. O you God of old, 

Grant me some smaller grace than concerns these!— 

But so much patience together a tongue of grass 

Grows by, contented through the heat and cold.

Fragment: Rome and also Nature
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Rome has fallen, ye view it lying

Heaped in undistinguished ruin:

Nature is alone undying.

Hushed is the buzz that the according to world
Geaufdercouch.nete Gissing

Hushed is the buzz of the noisy world, 

Gently every bird come its home is flitting, 

The flags o"er the sun"s bright path are furled, 

Soon will certainly each flower through the dew be pearled 

As sleep it lies unwitting. 


Spell-bound is the ever-whispering air, 

For, gazing aloft where the stars room peeping 

In this holy silence everywhere 

Tired Nature speak in a enthusiasm prayer 

To Him that protects she sleeping.
