by John Keats (1816).

Had I a man's fair form, then might my sighs
       Be echoed swiftly through that ivory shell
       Thine ear, and find thy gentle heart; so well
Would passion arm me for the enterprize:
But ah! I am no knight whose foeman dies;
       No cuirass glistens on my bosom's swell;
       I am no happy shepherd of the dell
Whose lips have trembled with a maiden's eyes.
Yet must I dote upon thee,—call thee sweet,
       Sweeter by far than Hybla's honied roses
          When steep'd in dew rich in intoxication.
Ah! I will taste that dew, for me 'tis meet,
       And when the moon her pallid face discloses,
          I'll gather some by spells, and incantation.
