A thing of beauty is a joy forever

John Keats wrote this famous poem titled "A thing of beauty is a joy forever". I have excerpted a few lines from his poem to go with my picture here.

A thing of beauty is a joy for ever: 
Its loveliness increases; 
It will never Pass into nothingness; 
A flowery band to bind us to the earth, 
Spite of despondence, 
Of the inhuman dearth of noble natures, 
Of the gloomy days, 
Of all the unhealthy and o'er-darkened ways 
Made for our searching: yes, in spite of all, 
Some shape of beauty moves away the pall.  
John Keats
