Percy Bysshe Shelley

Protestant Cemetery,
Rome, Italy

Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange

The friend who paid for Shelley's burial plot
saved the spot next to the poet for himself
leaving Shelley's wife, Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley,
author of Frankenstein, to find a last resting place elsewhere.
