    When I Was One-and-Twenty," by A.E. Housman When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, 'Give crowns and pound and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free.' But I was one-and twenty, No use to talk to me. When I was one-and-twenty I heard him say again, 'The heart out of the bosom Was never given in vain; 'Tis paid with sighs a plenty And sold for endless rue.' And I am two-and-twenty, And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

    In the first two stanzas he is saying that someone warned him about falling in love, but that he was twenty-one and didn't listen. In the last stanza he is saying that by the time he was twenty-two, he had fallen in love and found that although love was not given in vain (for no reason), it caused unending regret (endless rue). And "Oh", the man was right !
