Little John, or Robin bold; Never one, of all the clan, Thrumming on an empty can. Some old hunting ditty, while. He doth his green way beguile. To fair hostess Merriment, Down beside the pasture Trent; For he left the merry tale. Honour to the archer keen! Honour to tight little John, And the horse he rode upon! Honour to bold Robin Hood, Sleeping in the underwood! Honour to maid Marian, And to all the Sherwood-clan! Though their days have hurried by. Let us two a burden try. More About this Poem.

Robin Hood - Poem by John Keats. And if Robin should be cast Sudden from his turfed grave, And if Marian should have Once again her forest days, She would weep, and he would craze: He would swear, for all his oaks, Fall'n beneath the dockyard strokes, Have rotted on the briny seas; She would weep that her wild bees Sang not to her- -strange! that honey Can't.
