Poem: The Passionate Shepherdess to her Love
 
Come live with me and be my love,
And we will all love's pleasures prove
That valleys, hills, my stubbly fields,
Or any warm and moist spot yields.
 
I have for you now sweetly posed,
My face blossoming like a rose,
And worn my shepherdess's cloak.
Oh come and see my wooly flock.
 
I swear to love no one but you,
Whom I will lick like morning dew
Or honey from the fig's ripe seat,
Those golden drops I love to eat.
 
Lie down on me, my body's silk.
You're my honey; I'll be your milk.
I'll bring you warm and bubbling jugs,
And you will purr and lick my dugs.
 
I seep, I run, I ooze desire.
My open legs are smeared with fire.
Oh come and kiss my pepper-skin.
My taste sets testicles a-spin.
 
Love's capsicum will kill regret
And make our perineums sweat.
If these delights thy mind may move,
Then live with me and be my love.
 
John Wood
