John Keats

THE weltering London ways where children weep
And girls whom none call maidens laugh,'strange road
Miring his outward steps, who inly trode
The bright Castalian brink and Latmos' steep:'
Even such his life's cross-paths; till deathly deep
He toiled through sands of Lethe; and long pain,
Weary with labour spurned and love found vain,
In dead Rome's sheltering shadow wrapped his sleep.
O pang-dowered Poet, whose reverberant lips
And heart-strung lyre awoke the Moon's eclipse,'
Thou whom the daisies glory in growing o'er,'
Their fragrance clings around thy name, not writ
But rumour'd in water, while the fame of it
Along Time's flood goes echoing evermore.
