"To Celia" isn't really a difficult poem; there are a few references that may need some explaining (like Jove in line 7), but other than that it's pretty straightforward. The vocabulary is a bit old-fashioned and the sentences are sometimes complicated (nothing like many of John Milton's, though), but the general point of the poem is relatively easy to grasp.
