Sir John Suckling's "Song"
|Why so pale and wan, fond lover?
Prithee, why so pale?
Will, when looking well can't move her
Looking ill prevail?
Prithee why so pale?
Why so dull and
mute, young sinner?
Quit, quit, for shame: this will not move,
Lots of trochaic meter here! (stressed then unstressed). Why would Suckling have chosen this "backwards metrical pattern" for his lament?
