On receiving a Laurel Crown from Leigh Hunt
by John Keats (Autumn, 1816).

Minutes are flying swiftly, and as yet
Nothing unearthly has enticed my brain
Into a Delphic labyrinth—I would fain
Catch an immortal thought to pay the debt
I owe to the kind Poet who has set
Upon my ambitious head a glorious gain.
Two bending laurel sprigs—'tis nearly pain
To be conscious of such a Coronet.
Still time is fleeting, and no dream arises
Gorgeous as I would have it—only I see
A trampling down of what the world most prizes
Turbans and Crowns and blank regality;
And then I run into most wild surmises
Of all the many glories that may be.
