La belle dame sans merci

The beautiful ancient English text can be found here. I can but love these kind of poems. And what else can you do now it’s getting colder every day?

  1. Becoming Bitter

    Read the poem and I’ve read Keats’s poems before. I liked this one. Thanks for sharing RFB A… or is it B. I didn’t know you had this side to you.

  2. That picture is good but poetry isn’t my thing I am afraid.

    You have been mentioned in my new post titled β€œThank You!” check it out!!!

  4. This version (of the painting) is lovely, and has always been one of the most tragic I have commonly seen. I bought a print of this one when I was very young, before I had had encountered the poem and knew the connection, and it hung on my wall for years. I still have it, actually.

    • Wow, that’s a nice painting! I love that style, it’s one of my favourite painting styles! I adore the dramatical touch to it. It’s great.

      • It was very romantic to me when I was younger. Now, I can appreciate it in a slightly more sophisticated way, though I am no expert on painting. But when I chose the image I have now, to me there was a nice symmetry to it in my life. My first image was actually Eugene Delcroix’s “Liberty Leading The People”, but after about a year, I wanted a different me. Both are appropriate representations, though. πŸ˜‰

      • A symmerty? You were la belle dame sans merci for someone? πŸ™‚

      • Perhaps for someone, perhaps just generally, and perhaps both! πŸ˜‰
