First Line: Here lieth one whose name was writ on water!'
Last Line: A scroll of crystal, blazoning the name of adonais!
Subject(s): Keats, John (1795-1821); Poetry & Poets


'Here lieth One whose name was writ on water!'
But ere the breath that could erase it blew
Death, in remorse for that fell slaughter, -
Death, the immortalizing winter, flew
Athwarth the stream, and time's printless torrent grew
A scroll of crystal, blazoning the name of Adonais!
