..."it's where I put my coco pops..."

Hmmm, you mean Coco Krispies! European cereal names... :roll: :lol:

You've stumped us, Edward.

I know it! I know it! I cannot stand it any longer...

Edward, is it Fill for me a Brimming Bowl?

Yes, it goes like so:

For all I see has lost its zest:
Nor with delight can I explore,
The Classic page, or Muse's lore.

Had she but known how beat my heart,
And with one smile reliev'd its smart
I should have felt a sweet relief,
I should have felt ``the joy of grief.''
Yet as the Tuscan mid the snow
Of Lapland dreams on sweet Arno,
Even so for ever shall she be
The Halo of my Memory.

It's not a fair win, though--Edward gave too big a hint. :?
That American gal you like, Edward--she must be Irish-American.

Nah, just a bit of fun, is all. Sorry, Saturn, sir--won't happen again.

Ok...here's my quote--from one of my personal favorites:

But ah! I am no knight whose foeman dies;
No cuirass glistens on my bosom’s swell;
I am no happy shepherd of the dell
Whose lips have trembled with a maiden’s eyes

No one has to guess it...I just like quoting that one because it tugs at my heart almost as much as "Nightingale" and "This Living Hand." :cry:

It's one of his sonnets...

I'm going to guess that it's from Fall of Hyperion.
