Come live with me, and be my love,

And we will some new pleasures prove

Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,

With silken lines, and silver hooks.

There will the river whispering run

Warm'd by thy eyes, more than the sun;

And there the 'enamour'd fish will stay,

Begging themselves they may betray.

When thou wilt swim in that live bath,

Each fish, which every channel hath,

Will amorously to thee swim,

Gladder to catch thee, than thou him.

If thou, to be so seen, be'st loth,

By sun or moon, thou dark'nest both,

And if myself have leave to see,

I need not their light having thee.

Let others freeze with angling reeds,

And cut their legs with shells and weeds,

Or treacherously poor fish beset,

With strangling snare, or windowy net.

Let coarse bold hands from slimy nest

The bedded fish in banks out-wrest;

Or curious traitors, sleeve-silk flies,

Bewitch poor fishes' wand'ring eyes.

For thee, thou need'st no such deceit,

For thou thyself art thine own bait:

That fish, that is not catch'd thereby,

Alas, is wiser far than I.

.: The Bait :.

Junior Studying For Final-No explanation so ill just jot down some points
-He doesn't need bait to catch fish, he has her
-The fish not catched in the last stanza is "wiser" than him because he is already caught
-The first stanza is mocking a pastoral poem we read this year (forgot the name)
-He warmness heats the water even more then the sun
-He does not need the sun or moon's light when he has her
-The bait flies are portrayed as betraying the fish
-In the 5th stanza the speaker is explaining how others will suffer getting wet or cutting themselves actually fishing while he effortlessly is able to fish as long as he has her
-This whole thing is a bing long metaphor
