Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Artists in Today’s World ~ John Keats

Acknowledging John (Keats)

Ol’ Robin listen ye hear

Strange these days strange

Cannot ye people buy honey

Without hard money


Grinding the people down

The Sheriff

The taxmen

The wicked that lend


Gather up Little John

Robin and your old bow-string

Gather up Friar Tuck

Robin and your bugle-horn

Gather up ye merry men

Robin and archer keen


Sleep in the underwood

Protector of the people

Hunt the Sheriff down


Lay in Orion’s glen

Kissing Maid Marian

The lovelady’s kiss

On Mid-summer night

Damning dimming light


~ Stephen J. Bergstrom
