Mapping Keats’s Progress: A Critical Chronology

Mapping Keats’s Progress
A Critical Chronology

To Leigh Hunt, Esq.

  • Glory and loveliness have passed away;
  • For if we wander out in early morn,
  • No wreathed incense do we see upborne
  • Into the east, to meet the smiling day:
  • No crowd of nymphs soft voic’d and young, and gay,
  • In woven baskets bringing ears of corn,
  • Roses, and pinks, and violets, to adorn
  • The shrine of Flora in her early May .
  • But there are left delights as high as these,
  • And I shall ever bless my destiny,
  • That in a time, when under pleasant trees
  • Pan is no longer sought, I feel a free
  • A leafy luxury, seeing I could please
  • With these poor offerings, a man like thee.
