Happy Is England! I Could Be Content

Rating: 3.2
Happy is England! I could be content
To see no other verdure than its own;
To feel no other breezes than are blown
Through its tall woods with high romances blent:
Yet do I sometimes feel a languishment
For skies Italian, and an inward groan
To sit upon an Alp as on a throne,
And half forget what world or worldling meant.
Happy is England, sweet her artless daughters;
Enough their simple loveliness for me,
Enough their whitest arms in silence clinging:

Start working at home with Google. It’s the most-financially rewarding I've ever done. On tuesday I got a gorgeous BMW after having earned $8699 this last month. I actually started five months/ago and practically straight away was bringin in at least $96, per-hour........... www.GeoSalary.com

Frankly, I cannot see that the poem has anything much to do with patriotism. And it is about happiness, but only so as to say that it can be be found only partially in England. The spirit requires more than the 'sweetness of her artless daughters'; it may desire the majestic solitude of the Alps, as well as the 'beauties of deeper glance' floating upon Italian waters.

We do love our country be it England or USA, it is our homeland, where we are comfortable, where we are familiar with its climate, its people, its society. Beautifully written- -of course- this is John Keats behind the pen.

A wonderful poem, in which John Keats uses the figurative language to paint England's nature in colors.

An early masterpiece of double-think.

Wonderful sonnet weaved by the artistic hand of John Keats of the artless dames of England as he was languishing in vain of his great loss in love!

The poem carries a patriotic fervor without being eccentric. Here the nature plays the central part. Happy is England! To sit upon an Alp as on a throne,
