Comfort To A Youth That Has Lost His Love by Robert Herrick (1591 - 1674).

b]All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/comfort-to-a-youth-that-has-lost-his-love-by-robert-herrick/ [/b]
His verse is eminent for sweet and gracious fluency; this is a real note of the 'Elizabethan' poets. His subjects are frequently pastoral, with a classical tinge, more or less slight, infused; his language, though not free from exaggeration, is generally free from intellectual conceits and distortion, and is eminent throughout for a youthful NAIVETE. (From the introduction to FROM THE LYRICAL POEMS OF ROBERT HERRICK by Francis Turner Palgrave; Dec. 1876)

Comfort To A Youth That Has Lost His Love by Robert Herrick, read for LibriVox.org by [your name].

Then read the poem:
What needs complaints,
When she a place
Has with the race
Of saints?
In endless mirth,
She thinks not on
What's said or done
In earth:
She sees no tears,
Or any tone
Of thy deep groan
She hears;
Nor does she mind,
Or think on't now,
That ever thou
Wast kind:—
But changed above,
She likes not there,
As she did here,
Thy love.
—Forbear, therefore,
And lull asleep
Thy woes, and weep
No more.

At the end of your reading, leave a space and then say:

Here's mine. My first weekly poetry, for the April Challenge. Although, this is certainly the easiest and quickest way one could meet that challenge, I'm quite sure!
