    A marvellous poem wherein the poet reemphasizes the eternal truth that for a lover his lady love is the best, most virtuous and most beautiful. (Report) Reply

    It's a beautiful poem by Richard Lovelace about his lady love who is more than heaven and more than above all a Nature's cabinet storing all blissful things of life in one! (Report) Reply

    This particular poem of Lovelace is a nearly full catalogue of all the similes and/or metaphors used by cavaliers and court poets of that era (16th/17th centuries) , only the shepherds and the bucolic similes are missing. From the rhythm of the verse it appears that this poem got its final shape after several revisions. This poem is wholly within its tradition of thought and presentation. (Report) Reply
