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
