Not one kind look....one friendly word!
Wilt thou in chilling silence sit;
Nor through the social hour afford

    Hmm. Sounds like he bonked her then left her. Nasty business, and not very empowering. It may even rank with teenage angst.

    A poem carried forward from 400 years ago. What a place the world must have been for women in those far off days. No matter how they felt, they could not utter a word. When love was thrust upon them, they more or less had to accept providing Papa gave his consent. Yet she expresses herself with a gentle humour and a charming turn of phrase. I hope you lady poets are reading out there. Let's have no more of this Hey Lad. Do you want a girl frend

    I liked it. I applaud your brave use of rhyme and the scholarly way you employ it.

    Unbridled passion thwarted by ambition; in this modern age-the roles are inverted. Would a man be brave enough to share his secret love?

    Excellent poetry, the lamentation of a scorned lover, scorned for a career not another woman, the cruelest blow of all. The pleading of a lover for a bit of attention, and being completely overlooked. Amelie Opie was an excellent poetess.
