CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE (1543 - 1607)
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 mountain yields.
And we will sit upon the rocks,
Seeing the shepherds feed their flocks
By shadow 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,
Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle.
A gown made of the finest wool,
Which form 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,
An 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.
We love these brilliantly quirky decorations...!
On Sunday 17 April we met the lovely Juliet Carr at the Vintage Wedding Fair. She runs paperpompoms.co.uk and distributes 'flat-pack' poms for you to unfurl and use as decoration for your wedding. If you haven't got the budget to fill your venue with flowers we think this is a brilliant and original alternative!
