The rime describes a shepherds plea to someone he heatsurging them to live with him.Marlowe uses imagery to describe the scenery around the shepherd andhis love. The shepherd tries to convince her how happy they will be,surrounded by weed yields and groves in stanza one.Marlowe does not only use imagery in his meter but he also describesthe aromaAnd a thousand sweet-smelling posies.He creates a tranquil atmosphere by describing the harmonious practiced inthe spot and triplet stanzas.Melodious birds sing madrigals.In the third stanza the shepherd tells his love that he will give heranything she wants if she lives with him.

After reading t he poem the reader assumes that his love willgo and live with him as he offers her everything she may want. It isquite unpredictable that she would refuse this offer and so the replygives the story a conclusion. Even though the reader witnesss empathy forthe shepherd as he is prepared to do anything for the nymph, weappreciate the nymphs destine of view that nothing will stay the sameforever.Although the poems are some(prenominal) structurally similar, they expresscontrasting sentiments, a contrast which I feel makes these poems asuccess.
