From To Misery

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
 
COME, 1 be happy!—sit near me,
Shadow-vested Misery!..
All the wide world beside us
Show like multitudinous
Puppets passing from a scene;        5
What but mockery can they mean,
Where I am—where thou hast been?
 
Note 1. Shelley. From To Misery. A fragment. 1818. [back]
