Written in the Cottage where Burns was born
by John Keats (July 12th, 1818).

This mortal body of a thousand days
    Now fills, O Burns, a space in thine own room,
Where thou didst dream alone on budded bays,
    Happy and thoughtless of thy day of doom!
My pulse is warm with thine own Barley-bree,
    My head is light with pledging a great soul,
My eyes are wandering, and I cannot see,
    Fancy is dead and drunken at its goal;
Yet can I stamp my foot upon thy floor,
    Yet can I ope thy window-sash to find
The meadow thou hast tramped o'er and o'er—
    Yet can I think of thee till thought is blind,—
Yet can I gulp a bumper to thy name,—
    O smile among the shades, for this is fame!
