Fragment: Ye Gentle Visitations of Calm Thought

[Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Poetical Works", 1839, 1st edition.]

Ye gentle visitations of calm thought--
Moods like the memories of happier earth,
Which come arrayed in thoughts of little worth,
Like stars in clouds by the weak winds enwrought,--
But that the clouds depart and stars remain, _5
While they remain, and ye, alas, depart!

Percy Bysshe Shelley
