Extracts from Endymion: Bacchus
By John Keats (1795–1821)
 
(See full text.)

AND as I sat, over the light blue hills
There came a noise of revellers: the rills
Into the wide stream came of purple hue—
            ’Twas Bacchus and his crew!
The earnest trumpet spake, and silver thrills        5
From kissing cymbals made a merry din—
            ’Twas Bacchus and his kin!
Like to a moving vintage down they came,
Crown’d with green leaves, and faces all on flame;
All madly dancing through the pleasant valley,        10
            To scare thee, Melancholy!
