Two Songs At the Marriage Of The Lord Fauconberg And The Lady Mary Cromwell Analysis



Author: Poetry of Andrew Marvell Type: Poetry Views: 167





song Fauc1



First.



[Chorus. Endymion. Luna.]



Chorus.

Th' Astrologers own Eyes are set,

And even Wolves the Sheep forget;

Only this Shepherd, late and soon,

Upon this Hill outwakes the Moon.

Heark how he sings, with sad delight,

Thorough the clear and silent Night.



Endymion

Cynthia, O Cynthia, turn thine Ear,

nor scorn Endymions plaints to hear.

As we our Flocks, so you command

The fleecy Clouds with silver wand.



Cynthia

If thou a Mortal, rather sleep;

Or if a Shepherd, watch thy Sheep.



Endmymion

The Shepherd, since he saw thine Eyes,

And Sheep are both thy Sacrifice.

Nor merits he a Mortal's name,

That burns with an immortal Flame.



Cynthia

I have enough for me to do,

Ruling the Waves that Ebb and Flow.



Endymion

Since thou disdain'st not then to share

On Sublunary things thy Care;

Rather restrain these double Seas,

Mine Eyes uncessant deluges.



Cynthia

My wakeful Lamp all night must move,

Securing their Repose above.



Endymion

If therefore thy resplendent Ray

Can make a Night more bright then Day;

Shine thorough this obscurer Brest,

With shades of deep Despair opprest.

Chorus.

Courage, Endymion, boldly Woo,

Anchises was a Shepheard too:

Yet is her younger Sister laid

Sporting with him in Ida's shade:

And Cynthia, though the strongest,

Seeks but the honour to have held out longest.



Endymion

Here unto Latmos Top I climbe:

How far below thine Orbe sublime?

O why, as well as Eyes to see,

Have I not Armes that reach to thee?



Cynthia

'Tis needless then that I refuse,

Would you but your own Reason use.



Endymion

Though I so high may not pretend,

It is the same so you descend.



Cynthia

These Stars would say I do them wrong,

Rivals each one for thee too strong.



Endymion

The Stars are fix'd unto their Sphere,

And cannot, though they would, come near.

Less Loves set of each others praise,

While Stars Eclypse by mixing Rayes.



Cynthia

That Cave is dark.



Endymion

Then none can spy:

Or shine Thou there and 'tis the Sky.



Chorus.

Joy to Endymion,

For he has Cynthia's favour won.

And Jove himself approves

With his serenest influence their Loves.

For he did never love to pair

His Progeny above the Air;

But to be honest, valiant, wise,

Makes Mortals matches fit for Deityes.



song Fauc2



Second Song.



[Hobbinol. Phillis. Tomalin.]



Hobbinol

Phillis, Tomalin, away:

Never such a merry day.

For the Northern Shepheards Son

Has Menalca's daughter won.



Phillis

Stay till I some flow'rs ha'ty'd

In a Garland for the Bride.



Tomalin

If Thou would'st a Garland bring,

Philiis you may wait the Spring:

They ha' chosen such an hour

When She is the only flow'r.



Phillis

Let's not then at least be seen

Without each a Sprig of Green.



Hobbinol

Fear not; at Menalca's Hall

There is Bayes enough for all.

He when Young as we did graze,

But when Old he planted Bayes.



Tomalin

Here She comes; but with a Look

Far more catching then my Hook.

'Twas those Eyes, I now dare swear,

Led our Lambs we knew not where.



Hobbinol

Not our Lambs own Fleeces are

Curl'd so lovely as her Hair:

Nor our Sheep new Wash'd can be

Half so white or sweet as She.



Phillis

He so looks as fit to keep

Somewhat else then silly Sheep.



Hobbinol

Come, lets in some Carol new

Pay to Love and Them their due.



All.

Joy to that happy Pair,

Whose Hopes united banish our Despair.

What Shepheard could for Love pretend,

Whil'st all the Nymphs on Damon's choice attend?

What Shepherdess could hope to wed

Before Marina's turn were sped?

Now lesser Beauties may take place,

And meaner Virtues come in play;

While they,

Looking from high,

Shall grace

Our Flocks and us with a propitious Eye.

But what is most, the gentle Swain

No more shall need of Love complain;

But Virtue shall be Beauties hire,

And those be equal that have equal Fire.

Or who despair, now Damon does enjoy?

Marina yields. Who dares be coy?

Joy to that happy Pair,

Whose Hopes united banish our Despair.
