Albert's Poetry Cafe ~ "In A Nutshell" ~ ODES! April 18, 2011 - May 12, 2011
JOHN KEATS is famous for his Odes. His poetry is sensual and rich. "Ode to a Nightingale" begins with these unforgettable words:
"My heart aches, and a drowsy numbness pains
My sense, as though of hemlock I had drunk,
Or emptied some dull opiate to the drains
One minute past, and Lethe-wards had sunk."
