A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its lovliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep

    Beauty is transitional, fading in and out as the years roll on....it cannot be forever as we are not forever yet each stage of life has a beauty all its own...... Of course this is but a poem and subject to poetic licence as Keats walks us through that misty glade, shielding us from stark reality....... Nothing lasts forever......

    One of my fav poems. I'm pretty sure there should be All the lovely tales we have heard or read after the mighty dead line, though...

    All time favourite. Read in childhood, and still it is as fresh as ever in memory.

    A lovely flowing read. Hinting at the negative that we are using Beauty to dispell the power off. Not my personal taste so much, i prefer poems of passionate strenth of emotion and struggle/strife, but This is a poem to which a person might drift to sleep and hope for sweet dreams.
