    Don't you wish you could pen a first line like this one- -a line that cradles your imagination softly. And then don't you wish you could continue the beauty of that first line into your second and third and fourth lines? Ahhhh... reading Keats is like inhaling the fragrance of a rose. (Report) Reply

    A Thing of Beauty
    a joy forever because now it is part of memory, a good thing to counter the negative things we've been exposed to.

    this is one of many poems to remind us of the goodness in the world. another to read, poets, if you don't know it is pied beauty by gerard manley hopkins. his God's grandeur also is a great burst of inspiration on the same theme.

    This is the poem that laid the basis for the greater glories of the Odes and Chapman's Homer. The first five lines are unforgettable and have been rarely equalled by anyone. (Report) Reply

    An endless fountain of immortal drink,
    Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink.

    This beauty is the glorious beauty, the eternal life, and the perfect body that knows no death in the kingdom of God.... Nice poem...

    What a poem-if I read it once I cannot help reading twice and thrice...it moves with the coldness of beauty and peace-a heavenly feeling runs across body and mind...it's just magnificent. (Report) Reply
