To a Skylark

To a Skylark

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(6) Tree Line

This poem has a simple topic (the pretty song of a bird), but it has a tricky side, too. Before you know it, Shelley's off on a philosophical and metaphorical quest, and it takes a little huffing and puffing to keep up with him. Trust us, though—the view from the top is great!
