The Sensitive Plant
by Percy Bysshe Shelley


Mimosa, German print, 1745

And the young winds fed it with silver dew,
And it opened its fan-like leaves to the light.
And closed them beneath the kisses of Night.

Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast

In the garden, the field, or the wilderness,
Like a doe in the noontide with love's sweet want,
As the companionless Sensitive Plant.
