Born to an old and wealthy Norfolk family, Suckling was educated at Westminster School, Trinity College Cambridge and Grays Inn.

He inherited the family wealth at 18 and pursued a military and ambassadorial career overseas which saw him knighted in 1830.

    Good morning!

    I am impressed by your poem ' I sonnet', because it reminds of my times when i used to be a humanizer. I retired, because i made a decision to be a real man. Hence, a realman provides respect & dignity for his one & only. Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

Best Poem of Sir John Suckling

Why So Pale And Wan, Fond Lover?

Why so pale and wan, fond lover?
Prithee, why so pale?--
Will, when looking well can't move her,
Looking ail prevail?
Prithee, why so pale?

Why so dull and mute, young sinner?
Prithee, why so mute?--
Will, when speaking well can't win her,
Saying nothing do't?
Prithee, why so mute?

Quit, quit, for shame! this will not move,
This cannot take her--
If of herself she will not love,
Nothing can make her:
The Devil take her!
