Music, When Soft Voices Die
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory -
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

Love and hugs,

Walt, you are so right.  I've only recently started writing poems and all because I was inspired by someone in my life.  All my poems come from my experiences and I feel every single one of them.  Therefor, they are to me the best one's I've ever read.  Thanks for that.
