Percy Bysshe Shelley

(1792-1822 / Horsham / England)

And like a Dying Lady, Lean and Pale


And like a dying lady, lean and pale,
Who totters forth, wrapp'd in a gauzy veil,

And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,
The moon arose up in the murky East,
A white and shapeless mass--Credits and CopyrightTogether with the editors, the Department ofEnglish (University of Toronto), and the University of Toronto Press,the following individuals share copyright for the work that wentinto this edition:Screen Design (Electronic Edition): Sian Meikle (University ofToronto Library)Scanning: Sharine Leung (Centre for Computing in the Humanities)

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
