Courtship Poem by Rev. Dr. A. Jacob Hassler


Rating: 3.7

to write a poem
for a woman's favour:
it is fraught with misery and pain

with a poet man's heart and
stout esteem to lose
and his lady's disdain to gain

puts you right there with the Elizabethans. Consider your buckle swashed.

God Bless the ladies, God Bless the poets! ! If I ever write a poem that get's the lady, that will indeed be my favorite poem, I can't tell that they've served any other purpose, but I keep trying to write anyway, and I'm glad you do as well! ! ! Uriah

It's a chance we all take, Jake, putting our feelings ' out there', but with your talent, I know you could do it and do it well, gaining the lady's love and respect in the process. Great poem. Warmest regards and respect, CJ

It absolutely amazes me how much you are able to say, in so few words. I'm not an experienced poet, but you're an inspiration.
