Treasure Island

Percy Bysshe Shelley

(1792-1822 / Horsham / England)

A Roman's Chamber


I.
In the cave which wild weeds cover
Wait for thine aethereal lover;
For the pallid moon is waning,
O'er the spiral cypress hanging
And the moon no cloud is staining.

II.
It was once a Roman’s chamber,
Where he kept his darkest revels,
And the wild weeds twine and clamber;
It was then a chasm for devils.

and the sheds were all cut out;
