the Persian Princess in PERCY SHELLEY


the Solitary

by Percy Shelley 

Darst thou amid the varied multitude

To live alone, an isolated thing?

To see the busy beings round thee spring,

And care for none; in thy calm solitude,

A flower that scarce breathes in the desert rude

To Zephyrs passing wing?


This poem exactly describes what kind of person I want to be, and every day I’m requiring myself to live in this way, as a flower that scarcely breathes in the desert.
