Hero And Leander - Poem by Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is over-rul'd by fate.
hen two are stript long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should lose, the other win;
And one especially do we affect
Of two gold ingots, like in each respect:
The reason no man knows; let it suffice,
What we behold is censur'd by our eyes.
Where both deliberate, the love is slight:
Who ever lov'd, that lov'd not at first sight.

    THREE: Such a life he needed not to be involved with, but that is CM his own being! Could be a person be gay by birth? Or had he done his choice? . This part of him I dislike. (Report) Reply

    TWO: the content is oft fully worded, archaic for now, but ordinary language in his period. I like CM's poems very much, the longer we read, the more meaning they get. His life is a very tragic one. (Report) Reply
