The Unfortunate Lover

by Andrew Marvell

Alas, how pleasant are their days

With whom the infant Love yet plays!

Sorted by pairs, they still are seen

By fountains cool, and shadows green.

To His Coy Mistress

by Andrew Marvell

Had we but world enough, and time,

This coyness, Lady, were no crime

We would sit down and think which way

To walk and pass our long love's day.

Young Love

by Andrew Marvell

Come, little infant, love me now,

   While thine unsuspected years

Clear thine agèd father’s brow

   From cold jealousy and fears.
