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
Gebeer-selection.come Gissing

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.
