Five Sentence Fiction- Ache

Word Prompt- Ache
These 5 Sentences were inspired by the poem ‘ Ode to a Nightingale’ by my favourite poet, John Keats.

She sat enthralled by the words her English teacher read aloud:

‘ My heart aches and a drowsy numbness pains’

She was not sure what exactly this poet Mr Keats was on about…but she was captivated by the richness of his words and the imagery they inspired.

‘ Now more than ever seems it rich to die, To cease upon the midnight with no pain, While thou art pouring forth thy soul abroad in such sweet ecstasy!

As her teacher read the final verse, a single tear rolled down her cheek, and in an instant she knew that this was the beginning of a lifelong appreciation of the poetry of the magnificent John Keats.
