The Complete Poetical Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley - Percy Bysshe Shelley, Thomas Hutchinson (editor) 1935 - Oxford University Press, London ‘We look before and after,
And pine for what is not;
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell
Of saddest thought.
