Fragment: 'Wake the Serpent Not'

Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Poetical Works", 1839, 2nd edition.

 Wake the serpent not-lest he Should not know the way to go,- Let him crawl which yet lies sleeping Through the deep grass of the meadow! Not a bee shall hear him creeping,  Not a may-fly shall awaken From its cradling blue-bell shaken, Not the starlight as he's sliding Through the grass with silent gliding.
