Diana & Endymion

Diana & Endymion DIA

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.
~John Keats {Endymion}

  1. This post is a little gem on a desolate winter afternoon. The majestic scope of the picture forms a stunning contrast to the simple imagery of the lines. Thanks for posting!
