Poem by John Keats
Sonnet O Peace! and dost thou with thy presence bless The dwellings of this war-surrounded Isle; Soothing with placid brow our late distress, Making the triple kingdom brightly smile? Joyful I hail thy presence; and I hail The sweet companions that await on thee; Complete my joy - let not my first wish fail, Let the sweet mountain nymph thy favourite be, With England's happiness proclaim Europa's liberty. O Europe! Let not sceptred tyrants see That thou must shelter in thy former state; Keep thy chains burst, and boldy say thou art free; Give thy kings law - leave not uncurbed the great; So with the horrors past thou'lt win thy happier fate!
