Stanza, Written at Bracknell

Composed March, 1814. Published in Hogg's "Life of Shelley", 1858.
Thy dewy looks sink in my breast;
Thy gentle words stir poison there;
Thou hast disturbed the only rest
That was the portion of despair!
Subdued to Duty's hard control, 
I could have borne my wayward lot:
The chains that bind this ruined soul
Had cankered then—but crushed it not.
