    THE PASSIONATE SHEPHERD TO HIS LOVE.


    COME live with me, and be my love;
    And we will all the pleasures prove
    That hills and valleys, dales and fields,
    Woods, or steepy mountain yields.

    And we will sit upon the rocks,
    Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks
    By shallow rivers, to whose falls
    Melodious birds sing madrigals.

    And I will make thee beds of roses
    And a thousand fragrant posies;
    A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
    Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;

    A gown made of the finest wool
    Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
    Fair-lined slippers for the cold,
    With buckles of the purest gold;

    A belt of straw and ivy-buds,
    With coral clasps and amber-studs:
    And if these pleasures may thee move,
    Come live with me, and be my love.

    The shepherd-swains shall dance and sing
    For thy delight each May-morning:
    If these delights thy mind may move,
    Then live with me and be my love.


    Christopher Marlowe


    The Nymph’s Reply To The Shepherd


    If all the world and love were young,
    And truth in every Shepherd’s tongue,
    These pretty pleasures might me move,
    To live with thee, and be thy love.

    Time drives the flocks from field to fold,
    When Rivers rage and Rocks grow cold,
    And Philomel becometh dumb,
    The rest complains of cares to come.

    The flowers do fade, and wanton fields,
    To wayward winter reckoning yields,
    A honey tongue, a heart of gall,
    Is fancy’s spring, but sorrow’s fall.

    Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of Roses,
    Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies
    Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten:
    In folly ripe, in reason rotten.

    Thy belt of straw and Ivy buds,
    The Coral clasps and amber studs,
    All these in me no means can move
    To come to thee and be thy love.

    But could youth last, and love still breed,
    Had joys no date, nor age no need,
    Then these delights my mind might move
    To live with thee, and be thy love.

    Sir Walter Raleigh
