Love & disappointment By Yosef mebrahtom

In the poem "My Picture Left In Scotland " By Ben Jonson the poet talked about how people choose to hear only if they like what they see. In the first sentence it says "I now think that love is rather deaf than blind". It also says "I'm sure my language to her was as sweet". And continues to say "my hundred of gray hairs, told seven and forty years , My mountain belly and rocky face ; and all these through her eyes have stoped her ear". This is saying that even though he is nice and sweet she won't hear him because of his appearance
