A Very "Romantic" Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I'm in love with this! The Cure's musical rendition of the romantic Adonais by Percy Shelley. One of the poet's personal favorites, it was written as an elegy upon the death of Shelley's friend, John Keats.

Mary Shelley kept a copy of Adonais in her desk until her dying day. When the folded poem was discovered there, they opened it and found her late husband's ashes within.

Okay, it's a little morbid, but oh so Romantic!
