Storyboard Text

  • John Keats wishes to be loyal like a star but not lonely.
  • "Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art— Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night And watching, with eternal lids apart, Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,"
  • References a religious use of the word ablution hinting toward Keats' religion is his love.
  • "The moving waters at their priestlike task Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,"
  • Uses snow and mountains to give a feeling of loneliness.
  • "Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask Of snow upon the mountains..."
  • Furthering the idea of loneliness with "moors" and showing how steadfast Keats wishes to be by showing that the star is "still unchangeable."
  • "and the moors— No—yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,"
  • Keats is seeking comfort from his love because he misses her and feels lonely.
  • "Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast, To feel for ever its soft fall and swell, Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,"
  • Keats references that he is near death and lets his love know that he was thinking about her in his final living moments.
  • "Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath, And so live ever—or else swoon to death."
