Hello,
Can you help me with this poem:

O!my Love,my Love is young!
Age, I do defy thee!
O sweet shepherd, hie thee,
for methinks thou stay'st too long.

Methinks - I think?
thou - you?
Stay'st -I have no idea what it is.
Thanks

    Hello,
    Can you help me with this poem:

    O!my Love,my Love is young!
    Age, I do defy thee!
    O sweet shepherd, hie thee, [hie thee = go away]
    for methinks thou stay'st too long.

    Methinks - I think? :tick:
    thou - you? :tick:
    Stay'st -2nd person singular (old form) = stay [you are staying]
    Thanks
