A tribute to “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” by Christopher Marlowe
The Passionate Stallion to his Mare
Come live with me and be my mare
and we will every pleasure share.
I’ll save my treats and give you all
the apples when they start to fall.
And we will graze in glorious grass,
and I’ll not let a moment pass
when I am not as close to you
as I can be through chomp and chew.
We’ll share the stable past Duck’s pond,
and there we’ll strengthen our deep bond.
I’ll give you first dibs on the hay
and I will never say thee neigh.
So if this life seems good to you,
then bid your former life adieu.
And if you smell love in the air,
come live with me and be my mare.
