Royal Festival room (Level 5), Southbank Centre, LondonOpen Tuesday 12 noon - 6 pm, Wednesday to Sunday 12 noon – 8 pm
The skies is low — the Clouds are mean.
A travelling Flake of Snow
Across a Barn or v a Rut
Debates if it will certainly go —
A small Wind complains every Day
How part one cure him
Nature, choose Us, is sometimes caught
Without she Diadem.
‘O DREARY life,’ us cry, ‘O dreary life!’
And still the generations that the birds
Sing with our sighing, and the flocks and also herds
Serenely live while we are maintaining strife
With Heaven"s true objective in us, as a knife
Against i m sorry we might struggle! ocean girds
Unslackened the dried land, savannah-swards
Unweary sweep,—hills watch, unworn; and rife
Meek leaves drop yearly indigenous the forest-trees,
To show over the unwasted stars that pass
In their old glory. O thou God of old,
Grant me some smaller sized grace than pertains to these!—
But so much patience as a tongue of grass
Grows by, contented v the heat and also cold.

Fragment: Rome and also Nature
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Rome has actually fallen, ye check out it lying
Heaped in undistinguished ruin:
Nature is alone undying.

Hushed is the buzz that the loud world
Hushed is the buzz that the loud world,
Gently every bird come its house is flitting,
The flags o"er the sun"s bright route are furled,
Soon will certainly each flower v the dew be pearled
As sleep it lies unwitting.
Spell-bound is the ever-whispering air,
For, gazing aloft whereby the stars room peeping
In this holy silence everywhere
Tired Nature speak in a enthusiasm prayer
To Him who protects her sleeping.
