A Man of Beauty is a joy for ever:
His loveliness increases; he will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
Beautiful Man, I sleep better because of you.
Keats is all the rage at the moment, with Bright Star read by the delectable Rupert Penry-Jones and Ode to a Nightingale by Benedict Cumberbatch! Now I think we need Ciarán Hinds to read Endymion.
