Annette Friedrich

ĎA thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still will keep
A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.í

These are the opening lines of John Keatsí Endymion.  
Very often quoted indeed, but what else is there to say?
That is the aim.
