A very beadle to a humorous sigh.
- William Shakepeare
THOSE LIPS THAT LOVE'S OWN HAND DID MAKE

Those lips that Love's own hand did make

breathed forth the sound that said "I hate"

to me that languished for her sake;

but when she saw my woeful state,

straight in her heart did mercy come,

chiding that tongue that ever sweet

was used in giving gentle doom,

and taught it thus anew to greet:

"I hate" she altered with an end,

that followed it as gentle day

doth follow night, who like a fiend

from heaven to hell is flown away.

"I hate" from hate away she threw,

and saved my life, saying "not you."
- William Shakepeare
SO ARE YOU TO MY THOUGHTS AS FOOD TO LIFE

So are you to my thoughts as food to life,

or as sweet-seasoned showers are to the ground;

and for the peace of you I hold such strife

as 'twixt a miser and his wealth is found.

Now proud as an enjoyer, and anon

doubting the filching age will steal his treasure;

now counting best to be with you alone,

then bettered that the world may see my pleasure;

sometimes all full with feasting on your sight,

and by and by clean starväd for a look;

possessing or pursuing no delight

save what is had, or must from you be took.

Thus do I pine and surfeit day by day,

or gluttoning on all, or all away.
- William Shakepeare
