'Many a green isle needs must be/In the deep wide sea of misery'

'Rise like lions after slumber'

'A heavy weight of hours has chained and bowed/One too like thee, tameless and swift and proud'

'Women frank and beautiful and kind/Changed to all which once they dared not be'

'I love Love though he has wings, and like light can flee'

'As one sandalled with plumes of fire/I sprang towards the lodestar of my desire'

'By all that Man may be/By all that he is not

By all that he has been and yet must be!'

'Worlds on worlds are rolling ever/From creation to decay'

'We wandered to the pine forest/That skirts the ocean's foam'

'Methought I sate beside a public way

Thick strewn with summer dust

And a great stream of people there was hurrying to and fro'

'Of a world far from ours where music and moonlight and feeling are one'

'And Mary is left with his papers - and a question: she wonders how long

It will take for the world to recognise what it lost in this bright child of song'

'The soul of Adonais, like a star/Beacons from the abode where the eternal are'

'If winter comes, can spring be far behind?'

 

 

    A great introduction to, or reminder of the poet,

'Shelley Songs' lets you into his world in an easy-going format.

 Now in a complete version with new and enhanced recordings.

Available online this autumn
