Poem of the day

“Take, O take those Lips Away”
from Measure For Measure
by William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

Take, O take those lips away,
⁠      That so sweetly were forsworn;
And those eyes, the break of day.
⁠      Lights that do mislead the morn:
But my kisses bring again,
                  Bring again;
Seals of love, but seal’d in vain,
                  Seal’d in vain.
