I was going through some of my old school documents, and ended up coming across one of my poems that I made my senior year of high school. Writing poetry for an english assignment was always something I enjoyed doing. I was never one for reading poetry, but for some reason, if someone gave me a prompt, I was always able to conjure something up. Now, I’m not saying this is any good, but I’m still proud of the outcome.
This particular assignment was a poem response to: The Passionate Shepard to His Love by Christopher Marlowe
Response to: The Passionate Shepard to His Love
If I live with you to be your love
Do you believe we’ll be above
Of all the things that you’ve aspired
Or will you be another liar?
Do you believe our life will be so easy
Just because you’re being greedy?
You know I love you I really do
And I want nothing but the best for you
But I just can’t live with you and your sheep
With the only words you may not keep
I’d love to hear what you guys think, and if you have ever read this poem whether it was for school or just in your spare time let me know.
Thanks for reading ❤
