MODERN LOVE

by John Keats

 

And what is love? It is a doll dress'd up

For idleness to cossetnurseand dandle;

A thing of soft misnomersso divine

That silly youth doth think to make itself

Divine by lovingand so goes on

Yawning and doting a whole summer long

Till Miss's comb is made a pearl tiara

And common Wellingtons turn Romeo boots;

Then Cleopatra lives at number seven

And Antony resides in Brunswick Square.

Fools! if some passions high have warm'd the world

If Queens and Soldiers have play'd deep for hearts

It is no reason why such agonies

Should be more common than the growth of weeds.

Fools! make me whole again that weighty pearl

The Queen of Egypt meltedand I'll say

That ye may love in spite of beaver hats.

THE END
