Keatsian Devices

Grecian urns do not inspire these words       [Apsley ]

Which issue rather from profound despair       [Roland ]

At witnessing the death of many birds       [Apsley ]

Which tumble lifeless through the freezing air       [Beefy ]

To thaw, betimes       [Roland ]

'Neath tropic sun       [Beefy ]

And feed these rhymes       [Apsley ]

No mistress coy gives voice to lines like these       [Beefy ]

Nor like to her shall figure in their verse       [Apsley ]

Rather, the long-lost art of shelling peas       [Beefy ]

And showing them a-tumbling from the nurse       [Apsley ]

Shall stir the Muse       [Beefy ]

(To name but one)       [Apsley ]

To shout the news       [Beefy ]
