Oh Mistress Mine: William Shakespeare

“Oh mistress mine! where are you roaming?

Oh! stay and hear; your true love’s coming,

That can sing both high and low.

Trip no further, pretty sweeting;

Journeys end in lovers meeting,

Every wise man’s son doth know.


What is love? ’tis not hereafter;

Present mirth hath present laughter;

What’s to come is still unsure:

In delay there lies no plenty;

Then come kiss me, sweet and twenty,

Youth’s a stuff will not endure.” from Twelfth Night


Woman, look no further; stop holding out for Mr. Right. I’m Mr. Right Now, and we ain’t getting any younger. So go on and give us a kiss. Lift up your skirts and let’s see if we fall in love.
