Decreation

In the poem “When I have Fears That I May Cease to Be” I believe John Keats was afraid of dying before he was finished with his career of writing a lot of great books (Before my pen has gleaned my teeming brain).  Also, when he refers to “When i behold, upon the night’s starred face, Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance” he seems to be talking about a “starry romance,” maybe a romance he wished for but it never happened.  Then he goes on to talk about “Till love and fame to nothingness do sink”, maybe he is referring to the fact that he is afraid of dying and never experiencing true love or fame.  #vizpoem
