I was translating this poem by Lord Byron:
If, in the month of dark December,
Leander, who was nightly wont
(What maid will not the tale remember?)
To cross thy stream, broad Hellespont!
Actually I have more questions regarding the syntax but I don't think it's allowed to ask multiple questions here. so here's my question:
The wont in this poem, what does it mean?
I thought it means will not... to cross thy stream, but it looks like an older usage.
