FC: The Passionate Shepherd to His Love Christopher Marlowe 1599
1: This is my favorite poem by Christopher Marlowe. I thought that it would look great in a picture book like this one and so I created one myself. This is the dream proposal that any girl would dream of! | The Passionate Shepherd to His Love Christopher Marlowe 1599
3: Come live with me and be my love, And we will all the pleasures prove That valleys, groves, hills, and fields, Woods, or steepy mountain yields.
4: And we will sit upon rocks,
5: Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks,
6: By shallow rivers to whose falls Melodious birds sing madrigals.
7: And I will make thee beds of roses And a thousand fragrant poises,
8: A cap of flowers, | and a kirtle Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle;
9: A gown made of the finest wool Which from our pretty lambs we pull;
10: Fair lined slippers for the cold, With buckles of the purest gold;
11: A belt of straw and ivy buds, With coral clasps and amber studs;
12: And if these pleasures may thee move, Come live with me, and be my love. | The shepherds's swains shall dance and sing For thy delight each May morning:
13: If these delights thy mind may move, Then live with me and be my love.
