Connotation
Shift


Thy belt of straw and Ivy buds,
The Coral clasps and amber studs,
All these in me no means can move
To come to thee and be thy love.

But could youth last, and love still breed,
Had joys no date, nor age no need,
Then these delights my mind might move
To live with thee, and be thy love.
Attitude
He makes the Nymphs reply sound ungracious, rude, bitter, and snooty.
Title

The whole poem is about the Nymph is telling the shepherd that the love he is speaking of isn't real and impossible. When in fact she is mythical and not real.
In Conclusion...
Sir Walter Raleigh was executed
The Nymph rejected the Sheperd
And the Nymph is not real
Favorite of Queen Elizabeth
"The Nymph's Reply to The Shepherd"
If all the world and love were young,
And truth in every Shepherd’s tongue,
These pretty pleasures might me move,
To live with thee, and be thy love.
Original
Paraphrase
Original
Time drives the flocks from field to fold,
When Rivers rage and Rocks grow cold,
And Philomel becometh dumb,
The rest complains of cares to come.
Original
The flowers do fade, and wanton fields,
To wayward winter reckoning yields,
A honey tongue, a heart of gall,
Is fancy’s spring, but sorrow’s fall.
Original
Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of Roses,
Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies
Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten:
In folly ripe, in reason rotten.
Thy belt of straw and Ivy buds,
The Coral clasps and amber studs,
All these in me no means can move
To come to thee and be thy love.
But could youth last, and love still breed,
Had joys no date, nor age no need,
Then these delights my mind might move
To live with thee, and be thy love.

Title
the actual answer to the shepherds offer.
We think its a reply to his love letter, from the previous poem.
If all love stayed young and true, and she received all the gifts then she would come be his love.
What happens when winter comes and there are challenges to face. What would happen to their love?
Paraphrase
Paraphrase
All the crops will die and winter is on its way. All the sweet things hes telling her and what seems like a bold heart will change to hard times and bring sorrow.
Paraphrase
All of the things he is offering will fade and go away with the summer.
Paraphrase
All the gifts that will last don't appeal to her.
Paraphrase
If you could keep summer from leaving and keep our love from fading. Then i might be your love, but you could never do that.
The way the Nymph replies to the Shepherd is contradicting, realistic, and blunt.

"A honey tongue, a heart of gall,"
He says the tongue is honey
He says the heart is gall
bitter
the shift is where the reply sounds bitter and rude. (last stanza)
Now that we read the poem we believe that the title tells us that the Nymph is Replying to the Shepherd.
Nymph:A mythical spirit of nature imagined as a beautiful maiden inhabiting woods, rivers and other locations.
