Poem by John Keats


To Solitude


O Solitude! if I must with thee dwell,
    Let it not be among the jumbled heap
    Of murky buildings; climb with me the steep, 
Natures observatory  whence the dell,
Its flowery slopes, its rivers crystal swell,
    May seem a span; let me thy vigils keep
    Mongst boughs pavilliond, where the deers swift leap
Startles the wild bee from the fox-glove bell.
But though Ill gladly trace these scenes with thee,
    Yet the sweet converse of an innocent mind,
     Whose words are images of thoughts refind,
Is my souls pleasure; and it sure must be
     Almost the highest bliss of human-kind,
When to thy haunts two kindred spirits flee.
