Translation fun

I get interesting emails from my German translator. Last night it was a request for the specific Andrew Marvell poems I quoted from in Pirate's Price. I haven't looked much at my Marvell book since I finished Pirate's Price. I'm often that way with books I use over and over again while writing, but it was pleasant to pull it down from the shelf and re-read some of my favorite poetry. And in case any of you are wondering, the poems quoted in Pirate's Price are "To His Coy Mistress", probably Marvell's best known work, "The Garden" and "The Fair Singer".
