6. She loves me
loves me not.” And if this meant a vision long since fled — If it meant fortune, fame, or peace of thought –
If it meant, — but I dread
When it no more would roam ;
And thus at length find rest:
weak heart and all its throbs will cease.
Would ne'er have thus relieved
These verses are too sad

WHERE art thou, beloved To-morrow?
When young and old, and strong and weak, Rich and poor, through joy and sorrow,
Thy sweet smiles we ever seek,
IF I walk in Autumn's even
While the dead leaves pass,
Something is not there which was.
O WORLD! O life! O time!
Trembling at that where I had stood before ; When will return the glory of your prime ?
oh, never more ! To-morrow. Published by Mrs. Shelley, 1824. Lines. Published by Rossetti, 1870. A Lament. Published by Mrs. Shelley, 1824.
II Out of the day and night A joy has taken flight;
Fresh spring, and summer, and winter hoar, Move my faint heart with grief, but with delight No more
oh, never more!
POEMS WRITTEN IN 1822
When the cloud is scattered,
When the lute is broken,
When the lips have spoken,
As music and splendor
The heart's echoes render
No song but sad dirges,
Or the mournful surges
III When hearts have once mingled, Love first leaves the well-built nest; Lines. Published by Mrs. Shelley, 1824. i. 6 tones, Mrs. Shelley, 1824 || notes, Trelawny MS. ii. 6 through, Mrs. Shelley, 1824 || in, Trelawny MS.
8 dead, Mrs. Shelley, 1824 || lost, Trelawny MS.
The weak one is singled
O Love! who bewailest
Why choose you the frailest
Its passions will rock thee,
Bright reason will mock thee,
From thy nest every rafter
Leave thee naked to laughter,
THE MAGNETIC LADY TO HER PATIENT
“SLEEP, sleep on! forget thy pain ;
My hand is on thy brow,
And from my fingers flow
Seal thee from thine hour of woe;
