  • Read John Keat’s poem To Autumn: quote from final stanza, below

Think not of them, thou hast thy music too, -

While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,

And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;"

 

  • What do you think Keats is saying in this final stanza? (*A stanza is a section within a larger poem)
