“In drear-nighted December,
Too happy, happy brook,
Thy bubblings ne'er remember
Apollo's summer look;
But with a sweet forgetting,
They stay their crystal fretting,
Never, never petting
About the frozen time.”
—In drear nighted December (1817)
by John Keats
English poet John Keats, the bard of romanticism, found profound solace in nature's ever-changing beauty. In his timeless odes, he immortalised the fleeting essence of seasons, portraying winter as a time of both melancholy and ethereal charm. Keats' verses painted landscapes with vivid imagery, crafting an emotional connection between the observer and the natural world.
Keats' portrayal of winter as a season of introspection, where the frosty breath of nature intertwines with human emotions, resonates deeply with India's diverse wintry terrains. His depiction of winter's quietude, echoing through the snowy landscapes, mirrors the tranquillity found in snow-draped peaks and misty valleys.
