    To Jane: The Recollection

    Now the last day of many days,
    All beautiful and bright as thou,
    The loveliest and the last, is dead,
    Rise, Memory, and write its praise!
    Up,--to thy wonted work! come, trace
    The epitaph of glory fled,--
    For now the Earth has changed its face,
    A frown is on the Heaven’s brow.

    We wandered to the Pine Forest
    That skirts the Ocean’s foam,
    The lightest wind was in its nest,
    The tempest in its home.
    The whispering waves were half asleep,
    The clouds were gone to play,
    And on the bosom of the deep
    The smile of Heaven lay;
    It seemed as if the hour were one
    Sent from beyond the skies,
    Which scattered from above the sun
    A light of Paradise.

    We paused amid the pines that stood
    The giants of the waste,
    Tortured by storms to shapes as rude
    As serpents interlaced;
    And, soothed by every azure breath,
    That under Heaven is blown,
    To harmonies and hues beneath,
    As tender as its own,
    Now all the tree-tops lay asleep,
    Like green waves on the sea,
    As still as in the silent deep
    The ocean woods may be.

    How calm it was!—the silence there
    By such a chain was bound
    That even the busy woodpecker
    Made stiller by her sound
    The inviolable quietness;
    The breath of peace we drew
    With its soft motion made not less
    The calm that round us grew.
    There seemed from the remotest seat
    Of the white mountain waste,
    To the soft flower beneath our feet,
    A magic circle traced,--
    A spirit interfused around
    A thrilling, silent life,--
    To momentary peace it bound
    Our mortal nature’s strife;
    And still I felt the centre of
    The magic circle there
    Was one fair form that filled with love
    The lifeless atmosphere.

    We paused beside the pools that lie
    Under the forest bough,--
    Each seemed as ’twere a little sky
    Gulfed in a world below;
    A firmament of purple light
    Which in the dark earth lay,
    More boundless than the depth of night,
    And purer than the day--
    In which the lovely forests grew,
    As in the upper air,
    More perfect both in shape and hue
    Than any spreading there.
    There lay the glade and neighbouring lawn,
    And through the dark green wood
    The white sun twinkling like the dawn
    Out of a speckled cloud.
    Sweet views which in our world above
    Can never well be seen,
    Were imaged by the water’s love
    Of that fair forest green.
    And all was interfused beneath
    With an Elysian glow,
    An atmosphere without a breath,
    A softer day below.
    Like one beloved the scene had lent
    To the dark water’s breast,
    Its every leaf and lineament
    With more than truth expressed;
    Until an envious wind crept by,
    Like an unwelcome thought,
    Which from the mind’s too faithful eye
    Blots one dear image out.
    Though thou art ever fair and kind,
    The forests ever green,
    Less oft is peace in Shelley’s mind,
    Than calm in waters, seen. read more »
