SONNET

On the Sale by Auction of Keats’ Love Letters

These are the letters which Endymion wrote

To one he loved in secret and apart,

And now the brawlers of the auction-mart

Bargain and bid for each tear-blotted note,

Aye! for each separate pulse of passion quote

The merchant’s price! I think they love not art

Who break the crystal of a poet’s heart,

That small and sickly eyes may glare or gloat.

Is it not said, that many years ago,

In a far Eastern town some soldiers ran

With torches through the midnight, and began

To wrangle for mean raiment, and to throw

Dice for the garments of a wretched Man,

Not knowing the God’s wonder, or His woe?
