Part 6: Hang there, my verse, in witness of my love.

Today we will have another excerpt. Yay, Hooray!
I have chosen a much loved piece from As You Like It by William Shakespeare.
It is from Act III, Scene II.

Hang there, my verse, in witness of my love.
And thou, thrice-crownéd queen of night, survey
With thy chaste eye, from thy pale sphere above,
Thy huntress' name that my full life doth sway.
O Rosalind, these trees shall be my books,
And in their barks my thoughts I’ll character,
That every eye which in this forest looks
Shall see thy virtue witnessed everywhere.
Run, run, Orlando, carve on every tree
The fair, the chaste, and unexpressive she.
 -the end
I beseech thee, try being as romantic as Orlando this Valentines Day. It is no small task, I assure you.

Here you may watch As You Like It starring Laurence Olivier for free! Go here for such a pleasure: As♥You♥Like♥It
