Vol. IV. The Nineteenth Century: Wordsworth to Rossetti
 
To ——: ‘Music, when soft voices die’
By Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
 
MUSIC, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory;
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken;
 
Rose-leaves, when the rose is dead,        5
Are heaped for the beloved’s bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.
(1821.)
