Music Mondays (5/5/2011): Shelly and Bush

A LAMENT

by: Percy Bysshe Shelly (1792-1822)

WORLD! O life! O time!
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,
Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight
No more -- oh, never more!
