"... Keats felt a tranquil and continual joy in her song; and one morning he took his chair from the breakfast-table to the grass plot under a plum-tree, where he sat for two or three hours."
Benjamin Haydon, another friend of Keats was given a copy, he shared it with the editor of The Annals of Fine Arts and it was published in July's edition, earning Keats a small sum.
It made a second appearance in 1820 but this time in book-format along with Lamia, Isabella, The Eve of St. Agnes, and other poems.
