|From Walking in Scotland|
John Keats (17951821)
|SCANTY 1 the hour, and few the steps, beyond the bourn of care!|
|Beyond the sweet and bitter world,beyond it unaware!|
|Scanty the hour, and few the steps; because a longer stay|
|Would bar return and make a man forget his mortal way!..|
|Note 1. Keats. From the poem Walking in Scotland, written in the Highlands after a visit to the Burns Country. July, 1818. [back]|
