How many Bards
by John Keats (March, 1816).

How many bards gild the lapses of time!
       A few of them have ever been the food
       Of my delighted fancy,—I could brood
Over their beauties, earthly, or sublime:
And often, when I sit me down to rhyme,
       These will in throngs before my mind intrude:
       But no confusion, no disturbance rude
Do they occasion; 'tis a pleasing chime.
So the unnumber'd sounds that evening store;
       The songs of birds—the whisp'ring of the leaves
       The voice of waters—the great bell that heaves
With solemn sound,—and thousand others more,
       That distance of recognizance bereaves,
Make pleasing music, and not wild uproar.
