Mapping Keats’s Progress: A Critical Chronology

Mapping Keats’s Progress
A Critical Chronology

On The Story of Rimini

  • Who loves to peer up at the morning sun,
  • With half-shut eyes and comfortable cheek,
  • Let him, with this sweet tale, full often seek
  • For meadows where the little rivers run;
  • Who loves to linger with that brightest one
  • Of heaven — Hesperus — let him lowly speak
  • These numbers to the night, and starlight meek,
  • Or moon, if that her hunting be begun.
  • He who knows these delights, and, too, is prone
  • To moralize upon a smile or tear,
  • Will find at once a region of his own,
  • A bower for his spirit, and will steer
  • To alleys, where the fir-tree drops its cone,
  • Where robins hop, and fallen leaves are sere.
