Review on “One Word Is Too Often Profaned” by p.b.shelly

Book Review   by:akso6o175     Original Author: Andy Kester Sawian

In his shorter poems, Shelly achieves a blending of idealistic message, precision of imagery and captivating melody. One word is too often profane; secular rather than religious: not initiated into religious rites: not respectful of religious practice: (of language) blasphemous or obscene: treat with irreverence; for the narrator to profane it. One feeling is too falsely disdained; the feeling that someone or something is unworthy of one’s consideration or respect: consider or reject with disdain; for one to disdain it. One hope is too like despair for prudence; acting with or showing care and thought for the future; to smother; suffocate by covering the nose and mouth: (smother someone/thing in/with) cover someone or something entirely with: cause to feel trapped and oppressed: suppress (a feeling or action); and pity from one more dear than that from another. The narrator cannot give what men call love but will one not accept the worship the heart lifts above and the Heavens does not reject. The desire of the moth for the star of the night for the morrow, the devotion to something afar from the sphere of our sorrow.
