    .~ Like burnished brass; the strong-winged bird of prey
    Sweeps by, upon his lonely vengeful way -
    While over all, like breath of holy vows,
    The sweet airs blow, and the high-vaulted sky
    Looks down in pity this fair Summer day
    On all poor earth-born creatures doomed to die. ~
    ..........even on a beautiful summer day death still visits..... (Report) Reply

    Well, the first half of the poem contrasts the homesick mariner and the restless land-locked dweller. But the second half of the poem describes the bay and portends a death. Somewhat confusing. (Report) Reply

    I wait,
    the man in grey.
    The apple's,
    poisoned
    tree.
    As I, await.
    Each ship,
    that comes in.
    Leaving me without doubts....iip (Report) Reply

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
