Peace, peace! he is not dead, he doth not sleep

 He hath awakened from the dream of life        

 ’Tis we, who lost in stormy visions, keep

 With phantoms an unprofitable strife,

 And in mad trance, strike with our spirit’s knife

 Invulnerable nothings. We decay          

 Like corpses in a charnel; fear and grief              

 Convulse us and consume us day by day,

 And cold hopes swarm like worms within our living clay.           


The One remains, the many change and pass;

 Heaven’s light forever shines, Earth’s shadows fly;

 Life, like a dome of many-coloured glass,

 Stains the white radiance of Eternity,

 Until Death tramples it to fragments. Die,

 If thou wouldst be with that which thou dost seek!

 Follow where all is fled!—Rome’s azure sky,

 Flowers, ruins, statues, music, words are weak

 The glory they transfuse with fitting truth to speak.


Adonais by Shelley (stanzas 39&52)

Pronounced by Mick Jagger on 1969, July 6th at Hyde Park
