love is my religion





.


I have been astonished that men could die
martyrs for their religion –
I have shuddered at it,
I shudder no more.


I could be martyred for my religion.
Love is my religion
and I could die for that.
I could die for you.



–John Keats
from a letter, Oct. 13, 1819, to his fiancée Fanny Brawne
