That the Soul Can Turn


That the Soul can turn
Against itself
And live a pauper
Amid such wealth;

That the Soul should choose
A celibates bed
When married fair
And loving wed;

That the Soul should see
All things reversed,
Affection called:
A hated curse;

That the Soul can thrive
In insanitty
Shakes my faith
In humanity

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
