When I Have Fears

John Keats
John Keats

Words: John Keats (1795 – 1821)
Music: Michael Michaelis


When I have fears that I may cease to be
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brain,

Before high-piled books, in charactery,
Hold like rich garners the full ripen'd grain;


When I behold, upon the night's starr'd face,
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romance,

And think that I may never live to trace
Their shadows, with the magic hand of chance;


And when I feel, fair creature of an hour,
That I shall never look upon thee more,


Never have relish in the faery power
Of unreflecting love; -


      then on the shore
Of the wide world I stand alone, and think
Till love and fame to nothingness do sink.
