    One Word is Too Often Profaned

    by Percy Bysshe Shelley

    One word is too often profaned
    For me to profane it;
    One feeling too falsely disdained
    For thee to disdain it;
    One hope is too like despair
    For prudence to smother;
    And pity from thee more dear
    Than that from another.

    I can give not what men call love;
    But wilt thou accept not
    The worship the heart lifts above
    And the heavens reject not, -
    The desire of the moth for the star,
    Of the night for the morrow,
    The devotion to something afar
    From the sphere of our sorrow?
