A Song Of A Young Lady To Her Ancient Lover Comments

Rating: 3.0
Ancient Person, for whom I
All the flattering youth defy,
Long be it e'er thou grow old,
Aching, shaking, crazy cold;


Lord John Wilmot
Susan Williams 21 January 2016
John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester (1647-1680) , was a poet famous for his bawdy poetry. This particular poem satirizes the desires of an old impotent man to be reinvigorated and aroused by the warm caresses of an imaginary young lover. He writes this poem from the viewpoint of the young woman who, if the author is to be believed, enjoys caressing and sexually arousing that old decrepit roue. Excuse me, I have to go toss my Girl Scout cookies.
