Mapping Keats’s Progress
A Critical Chronology

Asleep! O sleep a little while white pearl

  • Asleep! o sleep a little while, white pearl!
  • And let me kneel, and let me pray to thee,
  • And let me call heaven’s blessing on thine eyes,
  • And let me breathe into the happy air,
  • That doth enfold and touch thee all about,
  • Vows of my slavery, my giving up,
  • My sudden adoration, my great love!
