ONE word is too often profaned
For me to profane it,
For thee to disdain it;
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
And the Heavens reject not,
Of the night for the morrow, The devotion to something afar
From the sphere of our sorrow ? То - Published by Mrs. Shelley, 1824.
SWIFTER far than summer's flight,
Art thou come and gone.
I am left lone, alone.
The swallow summer comes again,
To fly with thee, false as thou.
Sunny leaves from any bough.

Lilies for a bridal bed,
Pansies let my flowers be;
Waste one hope, one fear for me.
The serpent is shut out from paradise.
In which its heart-cure lies ;
Fled in the April hour.
Of hatred I am proud, · with scorn content; Indifference, that once hurt me, now is grown
Itself indifferent ;

But, not to speak of love, pity alone
The miserable one
Therefore if now I see you seldomer,
Your looks, because they stir
I scarce can bear; yet I,
When I return to my cold home, you ask
You spoil me for the task
Of author, great or mean,
Full half an hour, to-day, I tried my lot
With various flowers, and every one still said,

If it meant, — but I dread
The crane o'er seas and forests seeks her home;
When it no more would roam ;
And thus at length find rest:
weak heart and all its throbs will cease.
I asked her, yesterday, if she believed
Would ne'er have thus relieved
These verses are too sad
