To His Coy Mistress                                            Coy: Shy

   Had we but world enough, and time,                             Stanza 1: Flattery
This coyness, Lady, were no crime                                Stanza 2: Fear
We would sit down and think which way                         Stanza 3: Persuasion
To walk and pass our long love's day.
Thou by the Indian Ganges' side                                    Hypothesis
Shouldst rubies find: I by the tide                                  Emotive: Right thing to do
Of Humber would complain. I would                               Worshipped as a Goddess
Love you ten years before the Flood,                             humber: Just a river
And you should, if you please, refuse                            Noah's ark
Till the conversion of the Jews.                                      Dedicated
My vegetable love should grow                                      Natural                         
Vaster than empires, and more slow;                            Hyperbole:
An hundred years should go to
