"A thing of beauty is a Joy forever........

That's the first line of Book I of Endymion.
That very first verse stands as one of the most beautiful pieces of poetry ever written, is you ask me.

I would go to Google and type in "A thing of beauty - poem" and see the responses. You can find many fairly good summaries on the web. (I found a few in a few minutes).
Hope this helps.
