The Ode To Heaven: Cancelled Fragments.
Ode To Heaven: Cancelled Fragments
by Percy Bysshe Shelley
The [living frame which sustains my soul]
Is [sinking beneath the fierce control]
Down through the lampless deep of song
I am drawn and driven along --
When a Nation screams aloud
Like an eagle from the cloud
. . .
Watch the look askance and old--
See neglect, and falsehood fold. . . .
