Midsummer's Night Dream

And the quaint mazes in the wanton green

And the quaint mazes in the wanton green,
For lack of tread, are undistinguishable.

And this same progeny of evils comes

From our debate, from our dissension;

And thorough this distemperature

Read the Quote

And thorough this distemperature, we see
The seasons alter: hoary-headed frosts
Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose,
And on old Hiems’ thin and icy crown
An odorous chaplet of sweet summer buds
Is, as in mockery, set; the spring, the summer,
The childing autumn, angry winter, change
Their wonted liveries; and the mazed world,
By their increase,

These are the forgeries of jealousy

Read the Quote

These are the forgeries of jealousy:
And never, since the middle summer’s spring,
Met we on hill, in dale, forest or mead,
By paved fountain, or by rushy brook,

Some to kill cankers in the muskrose buds,
Some war with reremice for their leathern wings
To make my small elves coats, and some keep back
The clamorous owl that nightly hoots and wonders
At our quaint spirits.

The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve

Read the Quote

Theseus
The iron tongue of midnight hath told twelve.
Lovers, to bed! ‘Tis almost fairy time.
I fear we shall outsleep the coming morn
As much as we this night have overwatched.
This palpable-gross play hath well beguiled
The heavy gait of night. Sweet friends, to bed.
A fortnight hold we this solemnity
In nightly revels and new jollity.
