Poem – “Cynthia” by Sir Walter Raleigh | Hakon’s What’s the Verse that could happen?


If Cynthia be a queen, a princess, and supreme, Keep these among the rest, or say it was a dream, For those that like, expound,
and those that loathe, express Meanings according as their minds
are moved more or less; For writing what thou art, or showing what thou were, Adds to the one disdain, to the other but despair, Thy mind of neither needs, in both seeing it exceeds.
