Oliver Goldsmith Short Poems

Famous Short Oliver Goldsmith Poems. Short poetry by famous poet Oliver Goldsmith. A collection of the all-time best Oliver Goldsmith short poems


by Oliver Goldsmith
 When lovely woman stoops to folly,
And finds too late that men betray,
What charm can soothe her melancholy,
What art can wash her guilt away?

The only art her guilt to cover,
To hide her shame from every eye,
To give repentance to her lover,
And wring his bosom, is—to die.
