The poem tells us that Laura is the Love anyone deserves to have but only few have.
The writer of the poem Laura was Petrarch who had written more than 300 sonnets for Laura depicting his unrequited love for her. The poet identifies her only as Laura, her exact identity has never been definitively recognized. While many critics consider her to be Laura de Noves, who married Hugues de Sade in 1325, others question her very existence. Whatever the case, the figure of Laura is the inspiration or motivation for most of Petrarch’s Italian poetry. He even recorded her death from the plague in his precious copy of Vergil, an proof of his depth and devotion to her.
