I used four important names in the song and one not so important.  Two of the names, Shelley and Keats belong to 2 famous English Romantic poets.  The first, Percy Bysshe Shelley which was his full name, and he was born in 1792.
He died young (aged 29)

His wife Mary Shelley wrote the classic horror novel, 'Frankenstein'.  They both had tragic lives, however both were literary geniuses and left great works of literature behind.

The second Romantic poet's full name was John Keats.  He was born in 1795 and died in 1821 (aged 25).  He is the most beloved of all English poets.               (V.C)
