WHERE art thou, beloved To-morrow?
When young and old, and strong and weak, Rich and poor, through joy and sorrow,
Thy sweet smiles we ever seek,
IF I walk in Autumn's even
While the dead leaves pass,
Something is not there which was.
Trembling at that where I had stood before; When will return the glory of your prime ?
No more – oh, never more !
To-morrow. Published by Mrs. Shelley, 1824.
Out of the day and night
Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar, Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight
oh, never more!
POEMS WRITTEN IN 1822
WHEN the lamp is shattered, The light in the dust lies dead;
When the cloud is scattered,
When the lute is broken,
When the lips have spoken,
As music and splendor
The heart's echoes render
No song but sad dirges,
Or the mournful surges
III When hearts have once mingled, Love first leaves the well-built nest; Lines. Published by Mrs. Shelley, 1824. i. 6 tones, Mrs. Shelley, 1824 || notes, Trelawny MS. ii. 6 through, Mrs. Shelley, 1824 || in, Trelawny MS.
8 dead, Mrs. Shelley, 1824 || lost, Trelawny MS.
The weak one is singled
O Love! who bewailest
Why choose you the frailest
Its passions will rock thee,
Bright reason will mock thee,
From thy nest every rafter
Leave thee naked to laughter,
THE MAGNETIC LADY TO HER PATIENT
“SLEEP, sleep on! forget thy pain ;
My hand is on thy brow,
And from my fingers flow
Seal thee from thine hour of woe;

The Magnetic Lady to her Patient. Published by Medwin, Athenæum, August 11, 1832.
i. 1, ii. 1 Sleep, Trelawny MS., Mrs. Shelley, 18392 || Sleep on, Medwin.
And brood on thee, but may not blend
But when I think that he
Might have been lost like thee;
Might then have charmed his agony As I another's
heart bleeds For thine.
The dead and the unborn
Forget the world's dull scorn ;
Feelings which died in youth's brief morn;
My soul weeps healing rain
Its odor calms thy brain !
Spreads like a second youth again.
