Hither, Hither, Love

John Keats 1795 (Moorgate) – 1821 (Rome)

HITHER hither, love---
  'Tis a shady mead---
Hither, hither, love!
  Let us feed and feed!

Hither, hither, sweet---
  'Tis a cowslip bed---
Hither, hither, sweet!
  'Tis with dew bespread!

Hither, hither, dear
  By the breath of life,
Hither, hither, dear!---
  Be the summer's wife!

Though one moment's pleasure
  In one moment flies---
Though the passion's treasure
  In one moment dies;---

Yet it has not passed---
  Think how near, how near!---
And while it doth last,
  Think how dear, how dear!

Hither, hither, hither
  Love its boon has sent---
If I die and wither
  I shall die content!
