Random Poem of the Day

1When I was fair and young, and favor graced me,
2Of many was I sought their mistress for to be.
3But I did scorn them all, and said to them therefore,
4"Go, go, go, seek some otherwhere; importune me no more."
5How many weeping eyes I made to pine in woe;
6How many sighing hearts I have not skill to show,
7But I the prouder grew, and still this spake therefore:
8"Go, go, go, seek some otherwhere, importune me no more."
9Then spake fair Venus' son, that brave victorious boy,
10Saying: You dainty dame, for that you be so coy,
11I will so pluck your plumes as you shall say no more:
12"Go, go, go, seek some otherwhere, importune me no more."
13As soon as he had said, such change grew in my breast
14That neither night nor day I could take any rest.
15Wherefore I did repent that I had said before:
16"Go, go, go, seek some otherwhere, importune me no more."
