bright star













BRIGHT STAR, WOULD I WERE STEDFAST

By John Keats

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,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors---
No---yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillowed 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 in death.

1819

New movie by brilliant director Jane Campion ( The Piano), incredibly talented Ben Whishaw in leading role, story about John Keats and his love Fanny Brawne.What more could I wish for?


"Love is my religion - I could die for it"

John Keats

Film Piano mám hrozně ráda, akorát jsem pak z toho vždycky smutná, i když to vlastně dopadne dobře. Jo a ty šaty Balmain jsou fakt skvělý, i když ta ramena jsou na mě trochu moc...:-)
