The sun shines because of Keats

The ex mining town
called Barnsley in England,
South Yorkshire is
for reading Keats’ “To Autumn”
a little, wonderfully warmer;

I follow Keats’ “Bright Star”
and it illuminates my day;
it alleviates for one glorious minute
my coal deep pit of pain.

Thanks to fellow blogger “The Bard on the hill” for posting “To Autumn” by John Keats, now go away and look up “Bright Star” by Keats and see how real poetry is written. Go on, do it now, I insist.
