On the Grasshopper and Cricket by John Keats

Do you believe in the mystical, the astrologers, the weird and the wonderful? Oh! I do and I appear to share the same birth date and star sign as the great Poet John Keats. We have also worked in the same hospital Guys in London where he was a Med student but sadly I do not share his talent! Keats was born in London in 1795 and is known as one of the great English Romantics whose reputation only grew after his death of TB in Rome in 1821. Here is an excerpt from one of my favourite poems of his On the Grasshopper and Cricket, I love the first line The Poetry of earth is never dead… Apparently us Scorpios are passionate and dedicated Writers ğŸ™‚

The Poetry of earth is never dead:

   When all the birds are faint with the hot sun,

    And hide in cooling trees, a voice will run

    From hedge to hedge about the new-mown mead;
