On First Looking into Keat's Poems

Postby LoveIsGod » Mon Mar 22, 2004 9:27 pm

Hey guys, I thought someone here might enjoy a short sonnet I wrote to Keats (my first stab at writing poetry).

What thoughts have dwelt amongst the starry night,
To fly upon the winds to worlds unknown--
Yet never plummet from celestial height
To alter paper thoughts to plaques of stone?

How many thoughts at night have from me fled
To chase the distant, rim-topped end above?
But constant dreams and thoughts from you were bled,
That minds which thirst may drink your gory love.

And plasma running fresh into our throats,
Did not to mighty Gods unnoticed jet,
For justice and jury did cast the votes,
To doom thy mortal frame to waste, and yet…

Ye Gods who grasp for us: grasp nothing but defeats--
For thou art all-eternal now, bemused John Keats!

I'm having a bit of trouble converting the couplet to iambic pentameter, but I digress.
