To Haydon
by John Keats (February, 1817).

Haydon! forgive me that I cannot speak
    Definitively of these mighty things;
    Forgive me, that I have not eagle's wings,
That what I want I know not where to seek.
And think that I would not be over-meek,
    In rolling out upfollow'd thunderings,
    Even to the steep of Heliconian springs,
Were I of ample strength for such a freak.
Think, too, that all these numbers should be thine;
    Whose else? In this who touch thy vesture's hem?
For, when men stared at what was most divine
    With brainless idiotism and o'erwise phlegm,
Thou hadst beheld the full Hesperean shine
    Of their star in the east, and gone to worship them!
