Engrave this Quote I do not now begin,--I still adore
Her whom I early cherish'd in my breast;
Then once again with prudence dispossess'd,
And to whose heart I'm driven back once more.
The love of Petrarch, that all-glorious love,
Was unrequited, and, alas, full sad...

(translated by Edgar Alfred Bowring)
-Johann von Goethe, (poems) Tell a Friend
