Mapping Keats’s Progress: A Critical Chronology

Mapping Keats’s Progress
A Critical Chronology

Sweet, sweet is the greeting of eyes

  • Sweet, sweet is the greeting of eyes,
  • And sweet is the voice in its greeting,
  • When adieux have grown old and goodbyes
  • Fade away where old time is retreating.
  • Warm the nerve of a welcoming hand,
  • And earnest a kiss on the brow,
  • When we meet over sea and o’er land
  • Where furrows are new to the plough.
