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

Fragment: Rome and also Nature
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Rome has 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 of the loud world,
Gently each bird come its residence is flitting,
The flags o"er the sun"s bright path are furled,
Soon will each flower through the dew it is in pearled
As asleep it lies unwitting.
Spell-bound is the ever-whispering air,
For, gazing aloft wherein the stars are peeping
In this divine silence everywhere
Tired Nature speak in a enthusiasm prayer
To Him that protects her sleeping.
