The Passionate Shepherd to His Love

Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all the pleasures prove,
That valleys, groves, hills and fields,
Woods or steepy mountains 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

Poetry, art, and love – perfect antidotes for a crappy week, don’t you think? No? Well, tough, I do, and it’s my blog, so deal. And don’t you look at me in that tone of voice, either. I am so not in the mood for attitude right now.

Getting off a prescription med seemed like a great idea a week ago. It’ll probably seem like a great idea a week or two hence, too. But right now? Not so much.

Now I’ll crawl back under my rock and not come out until I’m fit company again. But if someone you know needs a telling off, you know where to send them. I’ll happily do the deed for you. And do it well. For sure.

  1. Oh yeah? Bring it on, girl! ;-)Sorry you're feeling so icky from adjusting to being off the meds. Hopefully it will pass soon. In the meantime I'll do my best to tread carefully around you. I hope Richard and Alex are safe from your ire, but I know they'll understand and forgive you 'cause they love you so much. CFS and fibro hooverize. Hope this week is better than the last one for you.Love and hugs,Diane

  2. Inner strength and sheer determination will see you through hen. However, if that should fail, do you fancy a couple of days graft up in the Gorbals?

  3. The more I look at the picture on this post, the more inclined I am to believe that withdrawal was not uppermost in your mans face.Shame on you Eleanor, posting porn indeed!
