In honour of tomorrow’s heart-filled holidays, here is a quote on that immortal subject. Can you guess the love-struck character and/or the play?
“Hang there, my verse, in witness of my love:
And thou, thrice-crowned queen of night, survey
With thy chaste eye, from thy pale sphere above,
Thy huntress’ name that my full life doth sway.
O Rosalind! these trees shall be my books
And in their barks my thoughts I’ll character;
That every eye which in this forest looks
Shall see thy virtue witness’d every where.
Run, run, _______; carve on every tree
The fair, the chaste and unexpressive she.”
And if you don’t want to be stuck posting your notes on trees this Valentine’s Day, be sure to buy a sonnet for that special someone by visiting: http://www.shakespeareinaction.org/sonnets-by-kids
