The Passionate Shepherd to His Love

Jared's Version

Please glance at me, my ladylove

The way stars glitter from up above

Or yet throw me that scornful look

The glare I always gladly took

Spare me the frowns and hear my plea

To my words, listen so carefully

Behind my annoying little teases

Is a loving heart that never ceases

So at least when the world looks away

Grant me a smile that says

Everything and rest's assured

That each day I live, those lips will curve

And instead of thee beds of roses

And a thousand fragrant poises

I offer you a passionate shepherd's tongue

Full of poems, songs and love to come

Instead of a gown made of finest wool

A warm, gentle hug through a night so cool

And if these offers may thee move

Glance back at me, my ladylove

This passionate shepherd shall dance and sing

For thy delight every morning

And if these delights shall win your heart

Glance and smile back at me, my ladylove.
