Percy Bysshe Shelley: Fragment of a Sonnet ("Farewell to North Devon")

Fragment of a Sonnet

FAREWELL TO NORTH DEVON.

Published (from the Esdaile manuscript book) by Dowden, "Life of Shelley", 1887; dated August, 1812.

Where man's profane and tainting hand
Nature's primaeval loveliness has marred,
And some few souls of the high bliss debarred
Which else obey her powerful command;
...mountain piles
That load in grandeur Cambria's emerald vales.
