His friend Joseph Severn painted a portrait of him in 1819 before his death. It immortalizes Keats as the young, hopeful, yet doomed poet aware of his mortality, reproduced around 1822 by William Hilton.

The most famous of his works are “La Belle Dame sans Merci”, “Ode on a Grecian Urn” and “Ode to a Nightingale”, all of which deal with death.

Even though they’re beautiful and moving, they’re not exactly Valentine-grade love poetry, unless your boo is a goth.

This sonnet is a beautiful poem to share with a special someone when you want something truly romantic.

‘Presence of Love’ by John Keats ▶️

Bright star, would I were steadfast 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,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors—
No—yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,
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,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever—or else swoon to death.

    उमंगें यूँ नहीं उठतीं , कहीं खुशियों के बादल छा रहे हैं मनाना जो है आज ही त्यौहार l
    बादल गरज रहे हैं , ऒर देखो आ गईं बौछार l
    खुशियाँ खटखटा रही हैं द्वार l
    क्योंकि आज मनाना जो है त्यौहार l
    जब, जहाँ जो ख़ुशी मिले,
    कर लो उसी वक़्त स्वीकार l
    जो कुछ दे सको किसी को
    दे डालो प्यारा सा उपहार l
    उमंगों भरे दिल से ही रूठे हुए अपनों की भी कर लो तुम मनुहार l
    बीत गया जो वक़्त, दोबारा कभी आता नहीं l
    जो भी उमंगों भरा दिल कहे,
    जश्न का माहौल बना डालो बात कह रही हूँ सही l

    उमंगों भरा दिल

    उमंगों भरा दिल था उसका
    तभी तो…..
    परेशानियों को अपने मुट्ठी में रखती थी
    मुस्कान सदैव बरकरार रहती थी उसकी
    चुटकी बजाते ही
    हर मुश्किल को किनारे कर
    पायदानों पर चढ़ रही थी वो
    न किसी से शिकवा न ही डर
    बस उमंग थी अपने लक्ष्य को पाने की
    लोगों को समझाने कि
    जिद्द अगर हो मन में तो
    तूफान भी मार्ग  रोक नहीं सकती
    बस जुनून उबलता रहे मन में
    बाकी ईश्वर पर छोड़ दो
    परेशानियाँ मैदान छोड़कर
    खुद – ब – खुद रफूचक्कर हो जाएंगी ।।
