Christopher Marlowes poem The Passionate Shepherd to His Love introduces a shepherds unyielding desire for a beautiful woman and his determination to capture her love This man seems to offer the woman all the pleasures prove2 of nature ranging from the steepy mountains4 to fragrant posies10 in exchange for her love The man goes on with his thick and endless wonders of love and life with this woman and she simply comes back with a harsh yet practical response contradicting all he has dreamt for his nymph The Nymphs Reply to the Shepherd written by Walter Ralegh is a poem that denies of a blossoming nature by describing the undeniable death of its beauty and worth While the shepherd is boasting about the wonderful things he will shower his nymph with she resists and esserts that love as well as nature will soon die In time all do fade9 The shepherd makes an endearment to give all the beauty of nature for her to be his love He seems to have a great imagination with the beauty of nature and does not think that anything will affect their love We will sit upon the rocks5 by shallow rivers7 listen to Melodious birds sing8 and I will make thee beds of roses9 He uses these warm words to move her but indeed she is not moved by his generous thoughts She response with a pessimistic view of nature the rocks grow cold6 how soon the rivers rage6 and how dumb the birds really are He goes on with a thousand fragrant posies10 and her delight each May morning22 but she still crushes his thoughts with flowers do fade9 Soon break soon wither soon forgotten15 and fancys spring but sorrows fall The nymph is very insensible to his picture of a life of idyllic beauty and his impracticalities For some nothing can come between the power of love and for others
