I need help selecting a poem - BYRON-KEATS or PERCY SHELLEY

I need to write a paper on a poem by Byron, Keats or Percy Shelley that was written prior to Jan. 19, 1819. I must analyze a passage in the work, and focus on how the passage deals with a theme or themes essential to the work as a whole. (I may consult outside sources,but it is not necessary.)

I need help selecting a poem that would be easy to write about. I am one of those people that need to be told what to write about (specifically.) So, I need a suggestion. I am looking for an answer like: How about (poem) by (author) because it addresses (theme). I am not looking for a thesis, just a suggestion to get me going!!
