I'd like to use it as a subtitle of my work.
Royt is a word from other language.
Thank you.
A: "Chaste" has sexual implications, while innocent has a wider range of meaning and does not necessarily connote sexuality. Both are positive words. Unspoiled is more negative in my opinion, because if the reader thinks the poem is sexual, then unspoiled has a more blatant underlying assumptions that sex is dirty. Words similar to unspoiled are unsullied. So depending on the meaning you want to create, you can choose one. Good luck with your poem!😉
