Song from the Wandering Jew

Published as Shelley's by Medwin, "Life of Shelley", 1847, 1 page 58.

See yon opening flower
Spreads its fragrance to the blast;
It fades within an hour,
Its decay is pale—is fast.
Paler is yon maiden; 
Faster is her heart's decay;
Deep with sorrow laden,
She sinks in death away.
