    This is pretty self explanatory the person is making their undying ode to a love one who is not there, so the message is relaid through the emphasis of the words

    exceptionally dressed, as is the repeated structure that is used in each fourth line within the stanza.

    As for you Jack Growden, your errant plea for attention is a shameful disgraceful way to use this section to gain publicity for yourself, go to Youtube for that. showboating (Report) Reply
