The Keats Foundation

‘By one, and one, the bolts full easy slide; – The chains lie silent on the footworn stones; – The key turns, and the door upon its hinges groans. And they are gone: ay, ages long ago These lovers fled away into the storm…’

The Eve of St Agnes

‘I have asked myself so often why I should be a Poet more than other Men, – a seeing how great a thing it is, – how great things are to be gained by it – What a thing to be in the Mouth of Fame…’

John Keats
