Royal Festival room (Level 5), Southbank Centre, LondonOpen Tuesday 12 noon - 6 pm, Wednesday to Sunday 12 noon – 8 pm

The sky is short — the Clouds space mean.

A travelling Flake that Snow

Across a Barn or through a Rut

Debates if it will go —


A small Wind complains every Day

How part one cure him

Nature, choose Us, is occasionally caught

Without her Diadem.


‘O DREARY life,’ we cry, ‘O dreary life!’ 

And tho the generations of the birds 

Sing through our sighing, and the flocks and herds 

Serenely live while we are keeping strife 

With Heaven"s true purpose in us, together a knife 

Against i beg your pardon we may struggle! ocean girds 

Unslackened the dried land, savannah-swards 

Unweary sweep,—hills watch, unworn; and rife 

Meek pipeline drop yearly from the forest-trees, 

To show above the unwasted stars the pass 

In their old glory. O she God of old, 

Grant me some smaller grace than concerns these!— 

But so much patience together a tongue of grass 

Grows by, contented through the heat and also cold.

Fragment: Rome and Nature
Percy Bysshe Shelley

Rome has actually fallen, ye view it lying

Heaped in undistinguished ruin:

Nature is alone undying.

Hushed is the buzz of the loud world
Gecg-tower.come Gissing

Hushed is the buzz that the loud world, 

Gently each bird come its home is flitting, 

The flags o"er the sun"s bright course are furled, 

Soon will certainly each flower v the dew be pearled 

As sleep it lies unwitting. 


Spell-bound is the ever-whispering air, 

For, gazing aloft wherein the stars are peeping 

In this holy silence everywhere 

Tired Nature speaks in a enthusiasm prayer 

To Him that protects she sleeping.
