A Draught Of Sunshine

Rating: 3.0
Hence Burgundy, Claret, and Port,
Away with old Hock and madeira,
Too earthly ye are for my sport;
There's a beverage brighter and clearer.
Instead of a piriful rummer,
My wine overbrims a whole summer;
My bowl is the sky,
And I drink at my eye,
Till I feel in the brain
A Delphian pain -
Then follow, my Caius! then follow:

A thoughtfully envisioned profound life song reflecting different aspects of the personality of the poet inclusive of the melancholia that occasionally grips him.

From meditative hours arises beautiful poetry. Same hours bring frightful images. Keats had faced them and utilized them so skillfully to create this marvelous poem.

The first part of this poem made me wonder if Emily Dickinson had read it before she wrote hers that begins, “I taste a liquor never brewed”—they’re so similar. But then Keats’ delight in nature in this poem took an unexpected direction for me—fear—of his death if I read him right—a fear so well and poignantly expressed in his sonnet which begins, “When I have fears that I may cease to be.” -GK

The poetry of Keats is characterized by sensual imagery, most notably in the series of odes. Today his poems and letters are some of the most popular and most analyzed in English literature. Anf that is my subject and accidentally he is my most favourite all poets all times. Too saddest, he became world famous after his death still 24 years old, he died OTW back to England from sunny Italy. He wanted to be buried in his country.

What an exquisite imagery! “My wine overbrims a whole summer; My bowl is the sky, ” Only Keats can write this.
