    Nature, love and poetry - a match made in heaven - Shelley's words reflect this profoundly and beautifully. (Report) Reply

    As with Byron's 'She Walks in Beauty', I must read this poem almost every day. It is as close to perfection in simplicity and cadence. It is one of the inspirations for my own poems on beauty and influenced 'An Angel's Face'. (Report) Reply

    WOW...That's pure Isolation and Idolatry...If we shall be the work of God just as the Moutains and the fountains, then shall we be one, and LOVE all. (Report) Reply

    Why, I don't know if it's the best poem or not, nevertheless it's definitely the one who urged me to continue searching the female soul.... (Report) Reply

    there is a lot i can say about this poem..but all i can really say its beautiful...it captures nature and shows how love is and how it can be...another thing i can say...take a chance if you love someone because love only comes when in need or when people begin to loose faith in it....
