I am the poet of the poor, because I was poor when I loved; since I could not give gifts, I gave words.
I am the poor man's poet; because I am poor myself and I have known what it is to be in love. Not being able to pay them in presents, I pay my mistresses in poetry.
Let him who loves, where love success may find,
Spread all his sails before the prosperous wind;
But let poor youths who female scorn endure,
And hopeless burn, repair to me for cure.
