Adieu

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Adieu Adieu ! thy plaintive anthem fades.

Past the near meadows over the still stream,

up the hill-side ; and now ’tis buried deep

in the next valley glades :

Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Fled is that music:…do I wake or sleep ?

Ode to a nightingale by John KEATS

“Friend, be very sure
I shall be better off with plants that share
More peaceably the meadow and the shower.
Soft rains will touch me,- as they could touch once,
And nothing but the sun shall make me ware.
Your guns may crash around me. I’ll not hear ;
Or, if I wince, I shall not know I wince.”

A Terre by Wilfred OWEN
