John Keats’s handwritten poem “To Fanny”. The page reads:

Ah dearest love! sweet home of all my fears,
And hopes, and joys, and panting miseries
To night, if I may guess, thy beauty wears
A smiling of such delight,
As brilliant and as bright,
As when with ravished, aching, vassal eyes,
Lost in soft amaze,
I gaze, I gaze!

Romantic poet comedy hour. 
Byron: Fine. Fine. Okay. Whatever. Mountains are cool / flowers are neat / glaciers are cold / your ass is sweet.

I found this copy of Thoreau’s Walden buried in the park.  I opened it and saw these roots growing between the pages. I don’t know whether to frame it or put it back in the ground.

I was fourteen when I heard of his death. It seemed an awful calamity; I remember I rushed out of doors, sat down by myself, shouted aloud, and wrote on the sandstone: “Byron is dead!”

[Shelley] was particularly fond of the dialogues in Phaedo and of Socrates’ doctrine that reminiscences from an earlier life were the basis of knowledge. This led him to stop a young mother carrying her infant across the Magdalen Bridge and inquire of the dumbfounded woman, “Will your baby tell us anything about pre-existence, Madam?”
