American poem; About the "To"?

Is anyone you guys know that Percy shelley 's "To--" ?

I can not find any stuff about this poem

If you know some internet site or you know about it

please answer and explain about this poem


one word is too often profaned

for me to profane it;

one feeling too falsely disdain'd

for thee to disdain it;

one hope is too like despair

for prudence to smother,

and pity from thee more dear

than that from another

I can give not what men call love

but wilt thou accept not

the worship the heart lifts above

and the Heavens reject not--

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?
