To His Mistress Comments

Rating: 3.7
Why dost thou shade thy lovely face? O why
Does that eclipsing hand of thine deny
The sunshine of the Sun's enlivening eye?

See, see how I am blind, and dead, and stray! -O thou art my life, my light, my way! ...... So simple was the life once to cry for a 'Thou'..... today days and passions are hungry enough to cry for thoulessness!

Definite Classic. Like Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and Bronte's tragic Wuthering Heights. Mystical, fable-like feel.

Beautiful poem about his mistress shying away from him and his fear that she'll leave him. He says many times that she is his life. It is a love poem through and through, with a good rhyming pattern and simple yet effective language.

A poet in love from centuries ago, may sound corny in our times; but reading aloud Lord Wilmot's verse taps our transcendent humanity.
