The Human Seasons By #johnkeats Four seasons fill the measure of the year; There are four seasons in the mind of Man: He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear Takes in all beauty with an easy span: He has his Summer, when luxuriously Spring's honeyed cud of youthful thought he loves To ruminate, and by such dreaming high Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings He furleth close; contented so to look On mists in idleness -to let fair things Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook: - He has his Winter too of pale misfeature, Or else he would forgo his mortal nature. #freetovisit #reconnectwithnature #riverdart #timelapse #poetry #naturephotography #dartingtonestate #dartington #totnes #devon ...
