Chorus From Hellas

Rating: 2.9

The world`s great age begins anew,
The golden years return,
The earth doth like a snake renew
Her winter weeds outworn:
Heaven smiles, and faith and empires gleam,
Like a wrecks of a dissolving dream.

A brighter Hellas rears its mountains
From waves serener far;
A new Peneus rolls his fountains

Against the morning star.

I enjoyed these lines very much- -]Another Orpheus sings again, / And loves, and weeps, and dies./ A new Ulyssses leaves once more / Calypso for his native shore... The rest of this not so much

For me Shelley's Ode to the West Wind and his sonnet Ozymandias stand out. I get an uplift from the opening two lines of this poem but note the oddness of snake renewing and winter weeds joined in one image. I also puzzle about Like a wrecks of a dissolving dream—though this may be due to the person who typed the poem out. Lessons we can take from this—even Shelley was human and no poet writes masterpieces every time. -GK
