Some of the English language's most popular poems are collected together here, their words bound by the same subject: loveI arise from dreams of theeIn the first sweet sleep of night,When the winds are breathing low,And the stars are shining bright.I arise from dreams of thee,And a spirit in my feetHath led me—who knows how?—To thy window chamber, Sweet! —Percy Bysshe Shelley Poetry is the perfect medium to express affection and passion in all its forms—from the initial stirrings of romance and desire, to enduring love in full bloom. This exquisitely illustrated anthology contains inspiring and moving poetry by some of the best-loved writers in the English language, from Geoffrey Chaucer to Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and from William Shakespeare to Christina Rossetti.
