Quotation by John Keats

Here, where men sit and hear each other groan;
Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last gray hairs,
Where youth grows pale, and specter-thin, and dies;
Where but to think is to be full of sorrow
And leaden-eyed despairs,
Where Beauty cannot keep her lustrous-eyes,
Or new Love pine at them beyond tomorrow.
John Keats (1795–1821), British poet. Ode to a Nightingale (l. 24–30). . .
