    Default I need help with this poem!

    I have to do a commentary on a medieval poem.
    I cannot understand the last lines. These are:
    "Women put on amazing airs,
    it suits them so well to do it.
    If I don't have my will of one,
    I'll give up all this wealth of joys,
    And flee straight to the woods."
    If you know what they mean, please e-mail me.
    Thenks a lot in advance

    Women can adopt amazing appearances and mannerisms. The author, if he isn't successful in finding a woman for himself, will give up the joys and beauty of all women and head for a simple lonely life in the woods.
