To...



One word is too often profaned
For me to profane it,
One feeling too falsely disdained
For thee to disdain it;

One hope is too like despair
For prudence to smother,
And pity from thee more dear
Than that from another.

I can give not what men call love,
But wilt thou accept not
The worship the heart lifts above
And the heavens reject not,--

The desire of the moth for the star,
Of the night for the morrow,
The devotion to something afar
From the sphere of our sorrow?

To-- by Percy Shelley (1792-1822)
