Written in 1817 and published posthumously in Letters and Journals of Lord Byron (1830), Lord Byron's "So We'll Go No More a Roving" has endured as one of his most popular short poems. A reworking of an old Scottish ballad, it's a farewell to youthful wildness by a poet whose youth was scandalously wild. The "we" of the poem pledge to stop partying all night long, but the pledge sounds wistful—and maybe halfhearted.
