Here is a place to post quick inquiries and poems from the Renaissance. Obviously, Shakespeare is included.
"Oh Mistress Mine"
"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".
Oh Mistress Mine
( From: 12th Night 2.3)
