Fill for me a brimming Bowl
by John Keats (August, 1814).

Fill for me a brimming bowl
And let me in it drown my soul:
But put therein some drug designed
To banish Women from my mind:
For I want not the stream inspiring
That fills the mind with—fond desiring,
But I want as deep a draught
As ere from Lethe's wave was quaff'd;
From my despairing heart to charm
The Image of the fairest form
That e'er my reveling eyes beheld,
That e'er my wandering fancy spell'd.
In vain! away I cannot chace
The melting softeness of that face,
The beaminess of those bright eyes
That breast—Earth's only Paradise.
My sight will never more be blest:
For all I see has lost its zest:
Nor with delight can I explore
The Classic page, or Muse's lore.
    Had she but known how beat my heart,
And with one smile relieved its smart,
I should have felt a sweet relief,
I should have felt "the joy of grief,"
Yet as the Tuscan mid the snow
Of Lapland thinks on sweet Arno,
Even so for ever shall she be
The Halo of my Memory.
