From The Original Draft Of The Poem To William Shelley

I.
The world is now our dwelling-place;
Where'er the earth one fading trace
Of what was great and free does keep,

Shall our contented exile reap;
For who that in some happy place
His own free thoughts can freely chase

Will fade...
But genius is omnipotent
