    Music When Soft Voices Die
    by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

    Music, when soft voices die,
    Vibrates in the memory -
    Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
    Live within the sense they quicken.

    Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
    Are heaped for the belovèd's bed;
    And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
    Love itself shall slumber on.
