    • Percy Bysshe Shelley, The Triumph of Life
      All flowers in field or forest which unclose
      Their trembling eyelids to the kiss of day,
      Swinging their censers in the element,
      With orient incense lit by the new ray
      Burned slow and inconsumably, and sent
      Their odorous sighs up to the smiling air []
