John Keats Campaign!

Hey folks look at this:

Not seen it before!
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.

Peter Sanson, 1995.

That's what I thought too, Ravenwing. Why not have it on the day thought to be his birthday (even if Keats was not fond of celebrating it)?

I figured they chose his death date because the day normally considered his birthday is also Halloween--which kind of overshadows all else. Feb. 23rd is a date unto itself and Keats can be properly spotlighted w/out any other pesky holidays getting in the way ;)

Wow - interesting stuff... you know Reavenwing, I like your creative suggestion - the block of Ice with Keats's name carved in it and let it melt. Very cool idea indeed. I can do that myself here in the US. Thanks for the suggestion.
My 8 year old daughter will like it too.
