An Epitaph For Keats

Rating: 3.0

THROUGH one, years since hanged and forgot
Who stabbed backs by the Quarter,
Here lieth one who—while Time's stream
Runneth, as God hath taught her,
Bearing man's fame to men,—will have
His great name writ in water.

A most befitting epitaph written for Keats. Enjoyed reading it: Bearing man's fame to men, —will have His great name writ in water.

The master art painted with words. A poem, after one and half a century can be proved as a modern writing. What a profound poem!
