Sighing like furnace,with wipeful ballad
Made to his mistress eyebrow,Then the soldier
Jealous in honor,sudden and quick in quarrel
Seeking the bubble reputation

1) Sighing like furnace with a woeful ballad made to his mistresses' eyebrow : - These lines of the poem, " The Seven Ages " describe a man's third age : - that is ' the lover'. It describes how a lover sighs at the memory of his mistress and writing poems even for his mistresses' eyebrow is his charectersistic nature.

2) Jealous in honour, Sudden and quick in quarell : - These lines convey the fourth age of a man ; that is , ' The Soldier'. In this age , a man becomes rude and jealous in every matter. For him ; honour is everything; even be it momentary and is always ready to fight for it even for small things.
