Neat Marlowe, bathed in theThespian springs, Had in him those brave translunary things That the first poets had; his raptures were All air and fire, which made his verses clear, For that fine madness still he did retain Which rightly should possess a poet's brain.
Come live with me, and be my love, And we will some new pleasures prove Of golden sands, and crystal brooks: With silken lines, and silver hooks. See Marlowe 553:17, Raleigh 677:98.john donne
Come, lady, let not this appall your thoughts. MarloweChristopher Marlowe
If all the world and love were young, And truth in every shepherd's tongue These pretty pleasures might me move To live with thee and be thy love. See Marlowe 553:17.Sir Walter Raleigh
All of a sudden I had to remember some words that Marlowe had told me over fifteen years ago: 'Dead men don't wear plaid.' Hmm... Dead men don't wear plaid. I still don't know what it means.steve martin
