Poem by John Keats

Lines Written on 29 May, the Anniversary of Charless Restoration, on Hearing the Bells Ringing

Infatuate Britons, will you still proclaim
His memory, your direst, foulest shame?
    Nor patriots revere?

Ah! when I hear each traitorous lying bell,
'Tis gallant Sidney's, Russell's, Vane's sad knell,
    That pains my wounded ear.
