Hero And Leander

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.

After leaving my previous job 12 months ago, i've had some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me... They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 4 months was for $4500... Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet...Read all about it here.......... www.geosalary.com
FOUR: A true and pure love poem, I like very much, but it seemed CM hid himself in his poems. A thought-provoking poem and very well worded, after all he got his Masters' degree and
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.
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.
ONE: This part belongs to two other parts: the first and yhe second sestiad, and these three poems must be read altogether. Thank you for publishing Christopher Marlowe's poems, except archaic words,
