Can anyone help me with this? Part of the poem goes:

"Rose leaves, when the rose is dead, are heaped for the beloved's bed"

Thanks

When Soft Voices Die
Mary Shelley (1797-1851)
(published as Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822))

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory.
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.
(1821)
