NUMBER:5952
AUTHOR:John Keats (1795–1821)
QUOTATION: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,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
  Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores.
ATTRIBUTION:Sonnet.
WORKS:John Keats Collection.
