In Memory of John Keats (1795 – 1821)

To Keats

 

If time must all accounts settle
And with all mortals seek requital
How should the earthly heaven afford
When in time death’s train all board?

 

Though born of an earthly lot
To what does man the Gods a lot?
Should we to heavenly aims aspire
To drink from the heavenly fire?

 

Then should man make the stars whisper

With a heavenly earthly vesper
As the light in the skies reflect

The boy with the temples laurel decked.
