    The Poets sing their 'Soulful Music',
    So here is Keats who says,
    ' My song' and not my poem
    People can read his words
    But need his immortal soul to adjust the lyric. (Report) Reply

    ' my song should die away
    Content as theirs,
    Rich in the simple worship of a day'........ This is the last prayer of every poet. With our verses we may run after the world and rake the brains but nothing happens in essence. So, we will settle for the idea which Keats has beautifully penned in these verses. Great! (Report) Reply

    The title captivates me...
    urge me to read since it seems so interesting
    to find out the lines on this piece...
    and I'm not mistaken what's inside is a piece with a classical touch
    ...very impressive.. and lovely...
    10+++

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
