Lines Written on 29 May, the Anniversary of Charles’s Restoration, on Hearing the Bells Ringing

Other Poems of John Keats→

Infatuate Britons, will you still proclaim
His memory, your direst, foulest shame?
Nor patriots revere?

Ah! when I hear each traitorous lying bell,
‘Tis gallant Sidney’s, Russell’s, Vane’s sad knell,
That pains my wounded ear.
