an ode to keats...







Yeah people, keats was my object of attention and affection...yup...john keats the poet..dnt kno how i was drawn towards him...i was nt tht kind of a person who used 2 admire poets...mayb its the sympathy towards his short n unfulffiled life...mayb its the melancholy in his poems with which i was able 2 relate 2 at one point of time....i remember me diggin out his poems frm the shelf n readin thm...got very much addicted 2 him...read his whole history,cursed his girlfriend who left him,wrote letters 2 him,collected his photograph,dnt kno how i lost it......

his life was a tragedy ...n it arose sympathy in me...sympathy 4 sm1 who had lived and died 2 centuries bac....funny...bt still i feel 26 was too young a age to die...

well..destiny cant b changed...so today he rests with these inscriptions on his tombstone...which he himself had asked his friend 2 put ...."Here lies one whose name was writ in water".

Bt i guess he was wrong...As loong as his poems are there,as loong as people like me are there...he will never be 4gotten....like he had said....

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.,

his poetry and memories will last 4ever....
