song to celia by ben jonson

Drink to me only with thine eyes,

And I will pledge with mine;

Or leave a kiss but in the cup,

And I’ll not look for wine.

The thirst that from the soul doth rise

Doth ask a drink divine;

But might I of Jove’s nectar sup,

I would not change for thine.

I sent thee late a rosy wreath,

Not so much honoring thee

As giving it a hope, that there

It could not withered be.

But thou thereon didst only breathe,

And sent’st it back to me;

Since when it grows, and smells, I swear,

Not of itself, but thee.

Song to CeliaBy: Ben Jonson
the first stanza

Drink to me only with thine eyes,

And I will pledge with mine;

Or leave a kiss but in the cup,

And I’ll not look for wine.

The thirst that from the soul doth rise

Doth ask a drink divine;

But might I of Jove’s nectar sup,

I would not change for thine.

He is telling Celia to say hello to him rather then saying cheers 1-2

He is telling her all he needs is her love rather then alcohol 3-4

He needs her to help his thirsty soul witch water and alcohol could not help 5-6

Jove is another name for the Greek god Zeus 7-8

The first stanza
the second stanza

I sent thee late a rosy wreath,

Not so much honoring thee

As giving it a hope, that there

It could not withered be.

But thou thereon didst only breathe,

And sent’st it back to me;

Since when it grows, and smells, I swear,

Not of itself, but thee.

He moves on to tell his relationship with the girl 9-12

He believes she's Devine

breathed on the wreath before she sent it back 13-14

He knows that Celia must have breathed on the wreath "since” it grows it smells like her instead of flowers 15-16

The Second stanza
portrayed

The Man is betrayed as loving He sends her a wreath

He would rather be with her then drink with the Gods

He believes she is Devine

PORTRAYED
motivation

“Drink to me only with thine eyes,

And I will pledge with mine”

He only has eyes on her beautiful self

“But thou thereon didst only breathe,

And sent’st it back to me”

He is exited she is showing love back to him

MOTIVATION
women society

He respects them

He tries wooing her instead of just getting with her

“I sent thee late a rosy wreath”

Women Society
article

The Article talks about what my group and I talked about, it brakes down how the poem is meant to be read and each line it talks about how he feels about her. The poem just talks about his love for her and how he wants the love to keep going but she turns him down.
