Keats Endymion By H. O. Walker. The story runs that from her silver chariot of the moon, Diana beheld the shepherd boy Endymion asleep upon mount Latmos; and enamored of his beauty, descended to press a kiss upon his lips. Night after night in her course across the heavens, the goddess paused to caress the youth; and Endymoin. each time but partially awakened, was conscious of her presence only as the sweet vision of a dream.
