  • The Cold Earth Slept Below Perfume Oil

    The cold earth slept below;
    Above the cold sky shone;
    And all around,
    With a chilling sound,
    From caves of ice and fields of snow
    The breath of night like death did flow
    Beneath the sinking moon.

    The wintry hedge was black;
    The green grass was not seen;
    The birds did rest
    On the bare thorn’s breast,
    Whose roots, beside the pathway track,
    Had bound their folds o’er many a crack
    Which the frost had made between.

    Thine eyes glow’d in the glare
    Of the moon’s dying light;
    As a fen-fire’s beam
    On a sluggish stream
    Gleams dimly—so the moon shone there,
    And it yellow’d the strings of thy tangled hair,
    That shook in the wind of night.

    The moon made thy lips pale, beloved;
    The wind made thy bosom chill;
    The night did shed
    On thy dear head
    Its frozen dew, and thou didst lie
    Where the bitter breath of the naked sky
    Might visit thee at will.

    – Percy Bysshe Shelley

    The bitter breath of the naked sky, the moon’s dying light: night-blooming flowers, white lemon peel, eucalyptus leaf, iced coconut meat, and orris root.
