Easy you say?

Now come on you know I'm never easy :wink:
"Thou didst die
A half-blown flow'ret which cold blasts amate.
But this is past: thou art among the stars
Of highest Heaven: to the rolling spheres
Thou sweetly singest: naught thy hymning mars,
Above the ingrate world and human fears."

Whatever happened with this game?

Did everyone get bored of it?

I can't remember why it was abandoned. Were the quotes becoming too obscure?

Answer:

Sonnet to Chatterton.


I want to play.


"And never was a day of summer shine,
But I beheld its birth upon the brine:
For I would watch all night to see unfold
Heaven’s gates, and Aethon snort his morning gold
Wide o’er the swelling streams: and constantly
At brim of day-tide, on some grassy lea,
My nets would be spread out, and I at rest.
The poor folk of the sea-country I blest
With daily boon of fish most delicate:
They knew not whence this bounty, and elate
Would strew sweet flowers on a sterile beach."
Why don't you really tell me how you feel!

I love this one:


Think of my Pleasure in Solitude, in comparison of my commerce with the world - there I am a child - there they do not know me not even my most intimate acquaintance - I give into their feelings as though I were refraining from irritating a little child - Some think me middling, others silly, other foolish - every one thinks he sees my weak side against my will; when in thruth it is with my will - I am content to be thought all this because I have in my own breast so great a resource. This is one great reason why they like me so; because they can all show to advantage in a room, and eclipse from a certain tact one who is reckoned to be a good Poet - I hope I am not here playing tricks 'to make the angels weep': I think not: for I have not the least contempt for my species; and though it may sound paradoxical: my greatest elevations of Soul leave me every time more humbled - Enough of this - though in your Love for me you will not think it enough.
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.

This is from one of his letters.... (that's brilliant BrokenLyre!)

I have read it before. Is it from his letter to George Keats? I can't recall right now... but seems like something he'd write to George or possibly Fanny Brawne.... 1818?

Nice quote Raphael

I wanna play!!
I haven't answered a quote correctly yet (probably because all the previous ones have been answered!! and the game hasn't been played in a while! and I don't even began to know [by heart] everything Keats has penned!), but I have one. I'm quoting from memory because I don't have my copy of Keats's poems with me here at school, so it most likely won't be verbatim and the verse breaks may be incorrect, but here it goes:

"We are such forest trees
And our fair branches have brought forth
Not pale solitary doves, but eagles, golden-feathered
Who do tower above us in their beauty
And who reign in right thereof;
For 'tis eternal law, that first in beauty should be first in might."
"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

Hyperion comes to mind. But I'm not sure.
