Two rival poets, Bunthorne and Grosvenor, turn a village upside down as they lure the town's young maidens away from their betrothed redcoat Dragoon Guards. As the maidens yearn for the love of first Bunthorne and later Grovenor, the two poets only have eyes for the simple and common Patience, the village Milkmaid, but she hasn't a clue what it truly means to love.
To Patience, all of this poetic talk is just plain nonsense, but to the maidens, it is most precious nonsense. Finally Bunthorne devises a plot to rid himself "forever" of his rival Grosvenor...but will his plan succeed?
