Act I, Scene 20

Sonnet to sundry notes of music

  • Shakespeare. Live with me, and be my love,
    And we will all the pleasures prove 355
    That hills and valleys, dales and fields,
    And all the craggy mountains yields.
  • Shakespeare. There will we sit upon the rocks,
    And see the shepherds feed their flocks,
    By shallow rivers, by whose falls 360
    Melodious birds sing madrigals.
  • Shakespeare. There will I make thee a bed of roses,
    With a thousand fragrant posies,
    A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
    Embroider'd all with leaves of myrtle. 365
  • Shakespeare. A belt of straw and ivy buds,
    With coral clasps and amber studs;
    And if these pleasures may thee move,
    Then live with me and be my love.
  • Shakespeare. [Love's Answer] 370
    If that the world and love were young,
    And truth in every shepherd's tongue,
    These pretty pleasures might me move
    To live with thee and be thy love.
