Bright Star, Would I Were Steadfast As Thou Art Analysis

Author: poem of John Keats Type: poem Views: 28

Sponsored Links

Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art—

    Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night

And watching, with eternal lids apart,

    Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,

The moving waters at their priestlike task

    Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,

Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask

    Of snow upon the mountains and the moors—

No—yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,

    Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,

To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,

    Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,

Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,

And so live ever—or else swoon to death.

Both of you need to shut up and help build a good site here. I see potential.
As far as "Bright Star" it's a convoluted poem. Somehow, it has to do with time, and the effects of time's passage. However, this is not all that clear.
There's an obvious point of the speaker stargazing with a lover. He is seeing the stars and the speaker is awed by the fact that a star can be ever watchful- seeing the entire earth at one point in time, the star can look at the "snowy mountains" or the "moving waters in the priestlike task" (the ocean and waves).
The Title and first line give it away entirely. The speaker wishes he were as steadfast and as infinite as the star he is admiring.
