To Shelley

Rating: 3.5

Shelley! You are the deathless defender,
The champion of poets in flesh and blood,
Your poetry is no putrid pretender,
Through fluid verses forceful flows its flood.

Shelley! The lightning in your lines is fierce,
And fiercer is the beauty of their chime,
Your thunder pulse did stop at thirty years,
Your sparkling spirit sings on still in rhyme.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Percy Bysshe Shelley has been a towering beacon for me ever since I first read his poems in my school days, and my love for his works and thoughts have only multiplied since. His sonorous lyric is fiercely beautiful, like the lightning, arguably the very best in the English language. Profound and rich in rhyme and rhythm schemes, his incomparable verses make him the King of Lyric Poets. It wouldn't be wrong to say Shelley is the reason Poetry (along with Music) is my first love. It's because of him I write poetry.
This is my humble tribute to him.
