    Such beauty in words drift nature into ones soul... Pouring unto us from the heaven's brink. Wonderful (Report) Reply

    Beauty is transitional, fading in and out as the years roll on....it cannot be forever as we are not forever yet each stage of life has a beauty all its own...... Of course this is but a poem and subject to poetic licence as Keats walks us through that misty glade, shielding us from stark reality....... Nothing lasts forever...... (Report) Reply

    A lovely flowing read. Hinting at the negative that we are using Beauty to dispell the power off. Not my personal taste so much, i prefer poems of passionate strenth of emotion and struggle/strife, but This is a poem to which a person might drift to sleep and hope for sweet dreams.

poet Edward Thomas

Like the touch of rain she was
On a man's flesh and hair and eyes
When the joy of walking thus
Has taken him by surprise:

With the love of the storm he burns,
