Whatever Lord Byron wrote is top of the top This is a very sad but very sweet tale of love, in a way that only Byron can express These are not just poems They are immortal masterpieces Humankind can wait as long as they want, but they will never find a better poet than Lord Byron. Amorous, vengeful and boring to read.
