His face was like a snake's -- wrinkled and loose
in the silent bush
serpent lives with withered eyes
tongue flipping to food
While 'wrinkled and loose And withered ' shows a pathetic condition 'A face like a snakes'denotes a furious and venemous appearence
A concise and witty bit of verse written with intensity of thought.
His poem 'Ozymandias' is arguably the best poem of all time.
Snake's face as the expression of the inner state of mind. very fine poem. short and sweet. tony
I wonder if the face gave away those deeply hidden ill emotions too, for the grasping of which the poets are so famous. That is what makes this poem great in its brevity.
Just like a formula in mathematics with lot of hidden elaboration. A great classic, ideal of brevity.
One of the best short poems by Percy Bysshe Shelley..........
Brief but beautiful. Short but meanigful.
very nice poem. short.. and meaningful. tony
When old we are most likely compared to a fox or a snake. Shrewd..or shrew.
