Near Spenser, On Keats

January 25, 2010
within this good book likened, I find greatest Muse
lying in wait for mine self to be so movingly inspired,
and I in turn await not long to my greatest hindrance lose:
the fear once was I bound, now am I free to rise the higher-
no longer afraid am I to pick the strings of Muse's lyre!
how free I am, he who knows not a Muse unguiding-
not withheld the Muse's spark for which others so perspire!
and tho I know this verse not to be full law abiding,
I care not to find my truest senses hiding!

Thanks, I'll definitely read some of your poems! I really enjoy comments, so thanks for reading it, and then going that one step further to tell me what you thought about it. By the way, you also might want to check out some poems by Keats, he was an amazing poet, and very inspirational, to me at least. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do!
