Monument to Percy Bysshe Shelley. Christchurch Priory, Christchurch, Dorset. Sculpted by Henry Weekes 1807-1877. The monument verse forty of fifty-five of Shelley's Adonaïs: An Elegy on the Death of John Keats, Author of Endymion, Hyperion, etc:
He has out-soared the shadow of our night;
Envy and calumny, and hate and pain,
And that unrest which men miscall delight,
Can touch him not and torture not again;
From the contagion of the world's slow stain
He is secure, and now can never mourn
A heart grown cold, a head grown gray in vain;
Nor when the spirit's self has ceased to burn,
With sparkless ashes load an unlamented urn.
