    'Noli me tangere quia Caesaris sum' ('Touch me not, for I am Caesar's') was inscribed on the collars of Caesar's hinds, which were then set free and were presumably safe from hunters.

    Also the word 'worried' in lines 3 & 5 is incorrect - it should be 'wearied'. (Report) Reply

    Wyatt based his poem on Petrarch's Sonnet 190. The similarity is remarkable, but so is the slight change of 'form.' Wyatt was probably expressing his feelings on the loss of Anne Boleyn, believed to be his mistress, to Henry VIII. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
