A Madrigal

Poem By William Shakespeare

Crabbed Age and Youth
Cannot live together:
Youth is full of pleasance,
Age is full of care;
Youth like summer morn,
Age like winter weather;
Youth like summer brave,
Age like winter bare:
Youth is full of sports,
Age's breath is short,
Youth is nimble, Age is lame:
Youth is hot and bold,
Age is weak and cold,
Youth is wild, and Age is tame:-
Age, I do abhor thee;
Youth, I do adore thee;
O! my Love, my Love is young!
Age, I do defy thee-
O sweet shepherd, hie thee,
For methinks thou stay'st too long.

FORTNITE IS LIFE POETRY SUCKS
Hi. this poem was average. thi poem is not very amazing. Shakespear really let us down here. p.s. that rhymes
Age, I do abhor thee; Youth, I do adore thee; ............... poetically its brilliant aroma inspires the dictional clarity of a poet.
My love is young Excellent use of imageries by William Shakespeare. Great poem from the Master himself. Sylva Onyema Uba
A brilliant depiction has been made on crabbed age and youth with many example. It may be quoted...... Age, I do abhor thee; Youth, I do adore thee; Great poem of great poet.
