    Hahaha! Something's never change with time. The cool aloof lady warmed the cockles of his heart and this made him want her even more. I liked how this is relevant so much today as much as it did at the time.

    this love is not easy, just absorb in your mind
    it's a sea full of fire
    Love is drowning into boiling water

    Beautiful Poem. I look up to poets like him. His poems still live, and I hope to be as great and known as him.

    This is an exemplar of an artificial 'problem' created and then 'solved' to demonstrate the poet's wit-a basic feature of many Elizabethan courtly-love sonnets.
