Clorinda And Damon

Rating: 2.6
C.
Damon come drive thy flocks this way.

D.
No : 'tis too late they went astray.

C.
I have a grassy Scutcheon spy'd,
Where Flora blazons all her pride.
The grass I aim to feast thy Sheep :
The Flow'rs I for thy Temples keep.

A huge 10 for this poem which I read as many as 12 times but failed to understand how the comments below are at all related to the poem. May be we are not from this trade, so there may be a problem. What was the problem in these previous century poets?

Dialogue in a poem, smartly told. As oft, poems in this format, the poet needs not to be afraid of mistakes in grammar (the tenses) . This kind of poetry shows more and is easy to understand. BUT to create a most beautiful poem is oft a problem, and herein I dare say that Mr. Marvell has succeeded. In his period only a quarter of the inhabitants of the UK could read. Mind you, poems were only read by that Top part in society, that was a most luxury spending time and the reader as well as the poet at his time got that merit. I like very much this loveliest dialogue between C and D. So very pity you do not live in mine era, otherwise I would have sent you a message. Regards for you in your UK grave, sincerely, Sylvia Frances Chan

Love shines and virtue is realized even in grave. We hear echo in caves. Fountains ring and sing in flow with melodious tune. Words of inspiration are ever sweet. This poem is brilliant and excellent poem very well drafted.10
