I had a dove

Photo of a big bunny rabbit!

I had a dove and the sweet dove died;
And I have thought it died of grieving:
O, what could it grieve for? Its feet were tied,
With a silken thread of my own hand's weaving;
Sweet little red feet! why should you die -
Why should you leave me, sweet bird! why?
You liv'd alone in the forest-tree,
Why, pretty thing! would you not live with me?
I kiss'd you oft and gave you white peas;
Why not live sweetly, as in the green trees?
John Keats


I know the picture & poem have nothing in common but I liked them both and wanted to share (:

  4. They give off the same wistful, soft, a little sad vibe. Keats is awesome.

  5. I love that photo! Is that you, or did you take that picture? It's beautiful.

    Interesting poem. It's sad yet sweet at the same time.
