NOW all the truth is out,

Be secret and take defeat

From any brazen throat,

For how can you compete,

Being honour bred, with one

Who, were it proved he lies,

Were neither shamed in his own

Nor in his neighbours' eyes?

Bred to a harder thing

Than Triumph, turn away

And like a laughing string

Whereon mad fingers play

Amid a place of stone,

Be secret and exult,

Because of all things known

That is most difficult.

Sir Walter Raleigh’s, The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd, is the reply to The Passionate Shepherd to His Love. The Nymph thinks that the Shepherd has a “Honey tongue” which means that the Shepherd is making false promises, and therefore rejects the Shepherd proposal.
Marvell’s “Coy mistress” is about the shepherd replying to the mistress. He states that one has to live for the day, and live life without regrets. When opportunities come, one should not simply let them pass, “Times winged chariot hurrying near.”
John Donne’s The Flea is a meta-physical poem about intercourse. The main idea of this poem is that woman can be pious, and still have erotic intercourse with their lovers, “And pampered swells with one blood or two” and also suggests intercourse by the word, “killing.”
Sonnet number 138 is about a man who does not trust his lover. Shakespeare, who was roughly 35 at the time, feels his lover is lying to him, and that he is to be taken as a fool, “in our faults by lies we flattered be.”
