Eyes : A Fragment Poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Eyes : A Fragment

Rating: 2.9


How eloquent are eyes!
Not the rapt poet's frenzied lay
When the soul's wildest feelings stray
Can speak so well as they.
How eloquent are eyes!
Not music’s most impassioned note
On which Love’s warmest fervours float
Like them bids rapture rise.

Love, look thus again,--
That your look may light a waste of years,
Darting the beam that conquers cares
Through the cold shower of tears.
Love, look thus again!

Tears of eyes say much eloquently about love of one more than the moving music or another look of one's personality for long in the world! Shelley knows pretty well the language of eyes as far as love is concerned!
