English Romantic Songs I. Music, when soft voices die

For Ann Moss, Soprano

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 – 1822)

Music, when soft voices die, Vibrates in the memory; Odours, when sweet violets sicken, Life within the sense they quicken. Rose leaves, when the rose is dead, are heaped, heaped for the beloved’s bed; and so thy thoughts, when thou art gone. Love itself shall slumber on.
