Bright Star! First Version
by John Keats (April, 1819).

Bright star! Would I were steadfast as thou art!
    Not in lone splendour hung amid the night;
Not watching, with eternal lids apart,
    Like Nature's devout sleepless Eremite,
The morning waters at their priestlike task
    Of pure ablution round earth's human shores;
Or, gazing on the new soft fallen mask
    Of snow upon the mountains and the moors:—
No;—yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,
    Cheek-pillow'd on my Love's white ripening breast,
To touch, for ever, its warm sink and swell,
    Awake, for ever, in a sweet unrest;
To hear, to feel her tender-taken breath,
Half passionless, and so swoon on to death.
