Subject(s): Keats, John (1795-1821); Poetry & Poets

I SAW pale Dian, sitting by the brink
Of silver falls, the overflow of fountains
From cloudy steeps; and I grew sad to think
Endymion's foot was silent on those mountains
And he but a hushed name, that Silence keeps
In dear remembrance, -- lonely and forlorn,
Singing it to herself until she weeps
Tears, that perchance still glisten in the morn: --
And as I mused, in dull imaginings,
There came a flash of garments, and I knew
The awful Muse by her harmonious wings
Charming the air to music as she flew --
Anon there rose an echo through the vale
Gave back Endymion in a dreamlike tale.
