The Dame's Reply To The Passionate Poet

(Reply To The Passionate Poet To His Love)


So come with you and become your love?
Intrigued am I, I must admit
For you have chosen me to be
The only woman you’ll ever need

But you must stop and understand
The woman chooses and not the man
The birds and bees that you refer
Their flight of passion I will defer

The man I want, the one I yearn
My every mood he’ll need to learn
Address my doubts with words that soothe
While wanting too my mind to use

A rendezvous, a subtle place,
A chat, the view, your handsome face
Your words paint pictures of such delight,
But I want more within my life

I’d love to see some poetry
Your words of beauty I’d love to read
And if my wants you look to fill
I’ll come with you and become your love

You offer passion, but I need more
Your passioned love, will it endure?
If my desire you care so much
Then I will come and become your love

Written in Texas -2012

    Ha! Did I nail it? LOL! I don't know, I think that's what she'd say. I hope you got to read the Passionate Poet poem which is the companion poem to this one. They both tie together. Thanks though, I'm glad you liked it! MC

    that is a loaded question she is asking him. I think when people are in love passionately, they are going to say anything. he cannot promise enduring love. Well, maybe he can if he is not a player!!! This was very interesting to see you doing it from the woman's viewpoint. it's so fun to be creative and try things like that.

    It was fun! I was so inspired by Raleigh's famous response to Marlowe I figured why not take a crack at it! This one was a bit harder to write since it was from a woman's point of view. Trying to assess what she wants and how she'd respond to this over-passioned poet was quite challenging. Thank you very much for reading and commenting!

    It was very important to me to replay the exchange between Marlowe and Raleigh. Marlowe the younger poet a little naive and Raleigh the older poet really slapping him down in the Nymph's Reply. Me, I waited 20 years to reply to my younger self, though I decided not to be as harsh to the 15 year old Marquis LOL! Writing from a women's point of view was kind of cool too, never did it before. Thanks!
