In ode to a nightingale john keats wants to go from this earthly world to the world of nightingale which is free from the ill and evil world(earthly world). In this poem keats take different things like different kind of wines to take his flight from this world to the world of nightingale. But he was unsuccessful in doing so. In this poem the poet expresses his feelings of fleeing. So the basic theme of the poem is that the poet liked the song of nightingale so much that he forgot his existence and says in the last stanza : " Fled is that music: do i wake or sleep ? so the poet was'nt in a conscious condition. He was not confirmed whether there was a nightingale or not or he was just dreaming : " Was it a vision, or a waking dream". if now also you have doubt thn mail me at luaizeuqah@gmail.com
