Dan Simmons' Hyperion

I can't find exactly from which poems are these used by Dan Simmons in his book. Can anybody help me?

Most of the stuff I identified (long ago) I believe came from Endymion, Hyperion and The Fall of Hyperion (somehow logically...). I don't have the books here to check - you can look for the exact references yourself at www.bartleby.com.

Ode to a Grecian Urn

I really like those books, especially the first two!
The last poem in "Endymion" is from Ode to a Grecian Urn. However, in Simmons' book it says "in Temple or in the tales of Arcady", while the version published on this site says "in Temple or in the dales of Arcady". Now I'd like to quote this poem, so which one is correct?

Well, to qoute Keats you probably shouldn't trust Simmons. I believe the published versions say "In Tempe or in the dales.." (Barnard third edition).
