17September1820

Postby Ennis » Mon Sep 20, 2010 6:30 pm

I forgot to post this last Friday before I left school:

190 years ago - on 17th September 1820 - the Maria Crowther sailed from Gravesend, and Keats began his journey to death and the end of his "posthumous life."

How much we have all lost. . .

Blessed be, Keats, we all love you.
"But if you will fully love me, though there may be some fire, 'twill not be more than we can bear when moistened and bedewed with Pleasures." JK to FB 08.07.1819

I'm annoyed with myself for not marking the day and bloody forgetting that! At least I light a candle by his portrait every night- maybe he will forgive me for forgetting.. :oops:
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.
