O wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being,
Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves dead
Are driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,

“Ode to the West Wind” is the finest piece of poetry by P. B. Shelley. “If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind? ” has become a popular quote to be followed in real life situations!

A few days ago I visited Shelley' tomb in Rome, where he lies near Keats.. Immense poet, and so young! To keep going in a long work in terza rima is a terribly difficult work, and nowhere one senses the difficulty of composition! The terza rima is enjoyable and the poetry flows freely, nothwithstanding the difficult technique!

Who am I to comment on the greatest, immortal poet! I just bow my head in obeisance and thank Him, God almighty to allow me to have lived after him, so I could read, relish and dream about him.
