Samling Academy presents

WHEN I WAS ONE AND TWENTY

When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say,

“Give crowns and pounds and guineas but not your heart away;


Give pearls away and rubies but keep your fancy free.”

But I was one-and-twenty, no use to talk to me.

                                                             AE Housman

Young love takes many forms.
