I find I am loving this new way of soaking up knowledge and exploring my imagination!
This poem has become a personal favorite of mine. I have to say the narrator that truly captured me to this lovely verse was Richard Armitage. It was first introduced in narration style to me by Audible through his reading of Classic Love Poems and this one in particular captures my imagination. I love it.
I think Bill Wallis did an okay job and I just love the work by Marlowe, but his pauses and inflections felt choppy and did not feel like he felt the passion of the piece. Mr. Wallis read it softly but without the passion and the breathless hope and anticipation of loves acceptance that Mr. Armitage had relayed. One would think by the words, the ache of whether or not the shepherd heard, "Yes, I will be your love..." would be an airy desperation and Mr. Armitage totally knew and relayed that feeling in his rendition.
This work makes me smile wistfully, sigh in knowing acceptance that there just might be a passionate fool out there for this fool. I catch my breath every time and bite my lip thinking of the scene.
