The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd
What is the speaker's attitude?
What does the speaker think of the shepherd's offer?
She thinks he has offered too little
She thinks it is appealing
She thinks it makes no sense
She thinks he loves her too much
Why does the nymph reject the shepherd?
Time will pass and the joys of youth will fade
She has no desire to live in the country
She loves another and will not leave him
She grew tired and waiting and married another
What does the speaker mean in these lines? Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy bed of roses, / Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies / Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten, / In folly ripe, in reason rotten.
None of these things matter if love is true
All of these things wear out in time, as does love itself
The reason for these things have changed
Those are foolish and illogical ideas
What is the speaker describing in these lines? Time drives the flocks from field to fold / Which rivers rage and rocks grow cold, / And Philomel becometh dumb...
the coming of winter
the end of love
a new pleasure to experience
What is the speaker's attitude toward love and youth?
Youth never experiences love
Youth is the only time for love
Love and youth are endless
Love and youth are brief
What does the speaker mean in this line? But could youth last and love still breed...
As people get older, love fades
Young people do not know the meaning of love
Love will outlast time
Only young people are able to love completely
