Lamia - John Keats description

“And soon his eyes had drunk her beauty up,
Leaving no drop in the bewildering cup”

Well, not bad!
I enjoyed this poem. John Keats is one of the most influential romantic poets and I'm one of his big fans.


The super short plot summary is:
“Lamia, a serpent, asks Hermes to give her a woman form in exchange for leading him to the girl he loves. He agrees, she's transformed to a woman, she goes and allures Lycius, the one she loves, to marry her, he does, but at their wedding Apollonius, a sage, uncovers her true self and tells Lycius that she's a serpent! She vanishes instantly and Lycius dies!”


It's worth reading. Especially for those who are so in love with romantic poems :) :)
