Quote #4

Love long has taken for his amulet
One perfect rose. (7-8)

Love has been around for, like, a billion, bazillion, years, and it's been doing the same thing for that whole time too: sending flowers. This is not just a statement of fact. It's a criticism! The speaker is upset that things have been the same for so long.
