“Art and eloquence,
And all the shows o' the world are frail and vain
To weep a loss that turns their light to shade.
It is a woe 'too deep for tears,' when all
Is reft at once, when some surpassing Spirit,
Whose light adorned the world around it, leaves
Those who remain behind nor sobs nor groans,
The passionate tumult of a clinging hope ;
But pale Despair and cold Tranquillity,
Nature's vast frame, the web of human things,
Birth and the grave, that are not as they were.”

SHELLEY.
