“Bright Star” by John Keats

Megan McIntyre

AP Lit pd. 6


Bright star! would I were steadfast as thou art-

Not in lone splendour hung along aloft the night

And watching, with eternal lids apart,

Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,

The moving waters at their priestlike task

Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores

Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask

Of snow upon the mountains and the moors-

No- yet still steadfast, still unchangeable

Pillowed upon my fair love’s ripening breast,

To feel for ever its soft swell and fall,

Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,

Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,

And so live ever- or else swoon to death.
