I need to translate some lines of poetry into today's language but I am having trouble. I am not sure what nto translate exactly. Here are some examples of lines I need to translate:
1. Thy youth's proud livery, so gazed on now,
2. With shifting change, as is false women's fashion,
3. Much steals men's eyes and women's souls amazeth.

Please help me. I am having so much trouble.
