AND NOW, THE METAFILTER ELOCUTION SOCIETY SHOUTS JOHN KEATS' ODE ON MELANCHOLY:


NO, NO, GO NOT TO LETHE, NEITHER TWIST
WOLF'S-BANE, TIGHT-ROOTED, FOR ITS POISONOUS WINE;
NOR SUFFER THY PALE FOREHEAD TO BE KISS'D
BY NIGHTSHADE, RUBY GRAPE OF PROSERPINE;
MAKE NOT YOUR ROSARY OF YEW-BERRIES
NOR LET THE BEETLE, NOR THE DEATH-MOTH BE
YOUR MOURNFUL PSYCHE, NOR THE DOWNY OWL
A PARTNER IN YOUR SORROW'S MYSTERIES;
FOR SHADE TO SHADE WILL COME TOO DROWSILY,
AND DROWN THE WAKEFUL ANGUISH OF THE SOUL.

BUT WHEN THE MELANCHOLY FIT SHALL FALL
SUDDEN FROM HEAVEN LIKE A WEEPING CLOUD,
THAT FOSTERS THE DROOP-HEADED FLOWERS ALL,
AND HIDES THE GREEN HILL IN AN APRIL SHROUD;
THEN GLUT THY SORROW ON A MORNING ROSE,
OR ON THE RAINBOW OF THE SALT SAND-WAVE;
OR ON THE WEALTH OF GLOBED PEONIES;
OR IF THY MISTRESS SOME RICH ANGER SHOWS,
EMPRISON HER SOFT HAND, AND LET HER RAVE,
AND FEED DEEP, DEEP UPON HER PEERLESS EYES.

SHE DWELLS WITH BEAUTY- BEAUTY THAT MUST DIE;
AND JOY, WHOSE HAND IS EVER AT HIS LIPS
BIDDING ADIEU; AND ACHING PLEASURE NIGH,
TURNING TO POISON WHILE THE BEE-MOUTH SIPS:
AY, IN THE VERY TEMPLE OF DELIGHT
VEIL'D MELANCHOLY HAS HER SOVRAN SHRINE
THOUGH SEEN OF NONE SAVE HIM WHOSE STRENUOUS TONGUE
CAN BURST JOY'S GRAPE AGAINST HIS PALATE FINE;
HIS SOUL SHALL TASTE THE SADNESS OF HER MIGHT,
AND BE AMONG HER CLOUDY TROPHIES HUNG.
