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.

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
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.
