Percy B. Shelley

Music vibrates in the memory

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory.

~ Percy B. Shelley

If silence and solitude were vacancy

The secret strength of things,
Which governs thought, and to the infinite dome
Of heaven is a law, inhabits thee!
And what were thou, and earth, and stars, and sea,
If to the human mind's imaginings
Silence and solitude were vacancy?

~ from "Mont Blanc" by Percy B. Shelley
