Poem of the Day

‘O! how I love, on a fair summer’s eve’, John Keats

O! how I love, on a fair summer’s eve,

When streams of light pour down the golden west,

And on the balmy zephyrs tranquil rest

The silver clouds, far – far away to leave

All meaner thoughts and take a sweet reprieve

From little cares; to find, with easy quest,

A Fragrant wild, with nature’s beauty dressed,

And there into delight my soul deceive.

There warm my breast with patriotic lore,

Musing on Milton’s fate – on Sidney’s bier –

Till their stern forms before my mind arise:

Perhaps on the wing of Poesy upsoar,

Full often dropping a delicious tear,

When some melodious sorrow spells mine eyes.
