John Keats

John’s poem

ON THE GRASSHOPPER AND Cricket

The poetry of earth is never dead:   When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,   And hide in cooling trees, a voice will runFrom hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead -That is the Grasshopper's. He takes the lead  In summer luxury; he has never done  With his delights, for when tired out with funHe rests at ease beneath some pleasant weed. The poetry of earth is ceasing never:   On a lone winter evening, when the frost    Has wrought a silence, from the stove there shrillsThe Cricket's song, in warmth increasing ever,   And seems to one in drowsiness half lost,     The Grasshopper's among some grassy hills.

He proved them wrong.
  • When John Keats was born it was said that poets are born, not made. Poets at that time were either gentleman from the upper classes where incomes were unearned, or well educated with broad intellectual backgrounds.
  • But John’s background was the lower classes. When he was a child no one even thought he had the talent to become a poet.
  • John Keats proved them all wrong.
