Review of "An Exhortation" by Percy Bysshe Shelley

"An Exhortation" by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1793 - 1822) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on August 4, 2013, on the anniversary of the poet's birth.  Shelley is one of my favorite poets, and, as a poet myself, I can really identify with his "Exhortation."  Shelley contrasts poets with chameleons, the former unwilling or perhaps unable to change at the whim of light (or fame).
