'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.
