Now I am blushing.
I do read the romantic poets, and I was hoping to get the same feel, so this is praise indeed, thank you
Funnily enough I didn't invent Julian for the purpose, he just decided he was a poet when I first wrote him, and I wrote his poems, and the satirical song, just for this novel, and partly to see if anyone likes the way I write poetry. as I'm getting a positive response, I will certainly be working harder on putting together a book.
They aren't all based on the romantic era, I also have a weakness for the Saxon poetic conventions. I did, however, write my own sonnet on Ozymandias since Shelley and Smith made a competition of it.

Ozymandias.

A man, it was, before time’s slow decay,
[Cracked by the dew and blasted by the wind]
Toppled the mighty statue from its stand
Crumbling for the wind to blow away.
The lower half unbroken; yet remained,
Devoid of visage, personality;
Anonymous as a nonentity
Yet on the plinth the statue had been named.
They called him Ozymandias, mighty king,
Rendered in Greek the unfamiliar name,
Certain that all would know of him, his fame
His immortality assured in his standing.

And yet, the writing in his tomb lives on
To tell of Rameses, greatest on the throne
