Shelley Sunday: ‘To William Shelley’

TO WILLIAM SHELLEY
by Percy Bysshe Shelley


Thy little footsteps on the sands
Of a remote and lonely shore;
The twinkling of thine infant hands,
Where now the worm will feed no more;
Thy mingled look of love and glee                                    _5
When we returned to gaze on thee--
