Portrait of the Contessa Rosa Arconati - Artist Unidentified
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 12:13pm

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory;
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

by Tobias Smollett (1721 - 1771)

When Sappho struck the quiv'ring wire,
The throbbing breast was all on fire:
And when she rais'd the vocal lay,
The captive soul was charm'd away!
