Three Pearls from Keats “It’s messy…”

“A poem needs understanding through the senses. The point of diving in a lake is not immediately to swim to the shore, but to be in the lake; to luxuriate in the sensation of water. You do not work the lake out; it is an experience beyond thought. Poetry soothes and emboldens the soul to accept mystery.” – John Keats

“No such thing as the world becoming an easy place to save your soul in.” – John Keats

“Life is divine Chaos. It’s messy, and it’s supposed to be that way.” – John Keats
