    On a Poet's Lips I Slept

    from 'Prometheus Unbound'

    On a poet's lips I slept
    Dreaming like a love-adept
    In the sound his breathing kept;
    Nor seeks nor finds he mortal blisses,
    But feeds on the aerial kisses
    Of shapes that haunt thought's wildernesses.
    He will watch from dawn to gloom
    The lake-reflected sun illume
    The yellow bees in the ivy-bloom,
    Nor heed nor see what things they be;
    But from these create he can
    Forms more real than living man,
    Nurslings of immortality!
    One of these awakened me,
    And I sped to succour thee.
