Shelley to Elizabeth Hitchhiker by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Never, with my consent[赞成], shall that intercourse[交流] cease which has been the day-dawn of my existence, the sun which has shed warmth on the cold drear[阴郁的] length of the anticipated[期望的] prospect of life. Prejudice might demand the sacrifice, but she is an idol to whom we bow not. The world might demand it; its opinion might require; but the cloud which flees over yon[远处的] mountain were as important to our happiness, to our usefulness. This must never be, never whilst this existence continues.
