Think'st Thou To Seduce Me ThenBy: Thomas Campion

The author of this poem is Thomas Campion. He wrote this poem in a female’s point of view. Campion is one of few to produce complete songs wholly of his own composition and only he wrote lyric poetry of enduring literary value. The construction is deeply etched with the poet's care for its ultimate fusion with music.

THINK’ST thou to seduce me then with words that have no meaning?Parrots so can learn to prate, our speech by pieces gleaning:Nurses teach their children so about the time of weaning. Learn to speak first, then to woo: to wooing much pertaineth:He that courts us, wanting art, soon falters when he feigneth, 5Looks asquint on his discourse and smiles when he complaineth. Skilful anglers hide their hooks, fit baits for every season;But with crooked pins fish thou, as babes do that want reason:Gudgeons only can be caught with such poor tricks of treason. Ruth forgive me (if I erred) from human heart’s compassion, 10When I laughed sometimes too much to see thy foolish fashion:But alas, who less could do that found so good occasion?
