The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
Christopher Marlowe (1564 – 1593)

Come live with me and be my Love.
And we will all the pleasures prove
That hills and valleys, dales and fields.
Or woods or sleepy mountain yields.
And we will sit upon the rocks,
And see 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 girtle
Embroider’d all with leaves of myrtle.
A gown made of the finest wool
Which from our pretty lambs we full;
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 my 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 my move.
Then live with me and be my Love.

The Theme : It is an invitation of the beloved from the passionate shepherd who tries to keep his beloved with him for lifetime through tempting proposals. The passionate shepherd is very much crazy to get love from his beloved. So, he wants to give her everything tempting. He wants to wander about in the lap of nature with his companion for sight-seeing. He is all for love.

(প্রেমিক মেষপালক তার প্রেয়সীকে নিমন্ত্রণ করে। সে তার প্রেয়সীকে প্রলুব্ধকর প্রস্তাবের মাধ্যমে সারাজীবন তার সাথে রাখতে চেষ্টা করে। প্রেমিক মেষপালক তার প্রেয়সীর কাছ থেকে ভালোবাসা পেতে খুব বেশি আগ্রহী নাই সে তাকে লোভনীয় সবকিছু দিতে চায়। মনোরম দৃশ্য উপভোগ করতে সে তার সঙ্গিনীর সাথে প্রকৃতির মাঝে ঘুরে বেড়াতে চায় সে ভালোবাসার জন্য সবকিছু করতে চায়।)
