Vows of my slavery,
my giving up,
My sudden adoration,
my great love!




Asleep! O sleep a little while, white pearl!
ASLEEP! O sleep a little while, white pearl!
And let me kneel, and let me pray to thee,
And let me call Heavenís blessing on thine eyes,
And let me breathe into the happy air,
That doth enfold and touch thee all about,
Vows of my slavery, my giving up,
My sudden adoration, my great love!


Selected Poems:
Ode on a Grecian Urn
Ode on Melancholy


John Keats
