Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run...
-- "To Autumn" (1820)

A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness...
-- "Endymion" (1818)

For to bear all naked truths,
And to envisage circumstance, all calm,
That is the top of sovereignty.
-- "Hyperion: A Fragment" (1819)

"Much have I travelled in the realms of gold,
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen."
-- "On First Looking into Chapman's Home" (1817)

"Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken;
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He stared at the Pacific -- and all his men
Looked at each other with a wild surmise --
Silent, upon a peak in Darien."
-- "On First Looking into Chapman's Home" (1817)
