Robert Bridges, ed. (1844–1930).  The Spirit of Man: An Anthology.  1916.
From Witch of Atlas

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

And never are erased—but tremble ever

Through lotus-paven canals, and wheresoever        5

With tombs, and towers, and fanes, ’twas her delight
To wander in the shadow of the night …
