Monday Mystery – Valentine’s edition

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.”
