Comfort To A Youth That Has Lost His Love

by Robert Herrick

"The pain of lost love is real, but it is not the end of the world." In this poem, Robert Herrick offers comfort to a young man who has lost his love. He reminds the youth that love is fleeting, and that there will be other loves in his life. He also encourages the youth to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, such as the beauty of nature and the company of friends. The poem is written in a simple and direct style, and it is full of Herrick's characteristic wit and humor. It is a reminder that even in the midst of grief, there is always hope.
