Old Poet and Young Slave Girl

Gentle slave girl,I am certainly not young
But I am in love with you as if Majnun.
Allow me to date you, stop my sufferings!
"How? You have such face and ask for a date..."
"If there was trade of faces in bazaar.
I would gladly spend last penny
in order to buy clean new face"
Then you would be able to love me too."
Allow me to date you... I am a poet.
But the heartless one said severely: "No"
