Keats uses a bright star and the earth to describe his innermost desires to be immortal, unchanged, and rejuvenated. He expresses deep feelings toward his lover, and if he had to live without her, he would welcome death.This line states the bright star is not alone in its brilliance, but is accompanied by other stars. With this line, Keats expresses the importance of companionship and the fear of being alone.
