Famous Poem

To a Friend Who Sent Me Some Roses
By John Keats


As late I rambled in the happy fields,
    What time the sky-lark shakes the tremulous dew
    From his lush clover covert; — when anew
Adventurous knights take up their dinted shields:
I saw the sweetest flower wild nature yields,
    A fresh-blown musk-rose; 'twas the first that threw
    Its sweets upon the summer: graceful it grew
As is the wand that queen Titania wields.
And, as I feasted on its fragrancy,
    I thought the garden-rose it far excell'd:    
But when, O Wells! thy roses came to me
    My sense with their deliciousness was spell'd:
Soft voices had they, that with tender plea
    Whisper'd of peace, and truth, and friendliness unquell'd.
