Fear no more 07:46
Fear no more the heat o’ the sun, Nor the furious winter’s rages; Thou thy worldly task hast done, Home art gone, and ta’en thy wages: Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust. Fear no more the frown o’ the great; Thou art past the tyrant’s stroke; Care no more to clothe and eat; To thee the reed is as the oak: The scepter, learning, physic, must All follow this, and come to dust. Fear no more the lightning flash, Nor the all-dreaded thunder stone; Fear not slander, censure rash; Thou hast finished joy and moan: All lovers young, all lovers must Consign to thee, and come to dust. No exorciser harm thee! Nor no witchcraft charm thee! Ghost unlaid forbear thee! Nothing ill come near thee! Quiet consummation have; And renownèd be thy grave!

When daisies pied and violets blue,  And lady-smocks all silver-white,  And cuckoo-buds of yellow hue  Do paint the meadows with delight, The cuckoo then, on every tree,  Mocks married men; for thus sings he,  Cuckoo!  Cuckoo, cuckoo! - O word of fear,  Unpleasing to a married ear!  When shepherds pipe on oaten straws,  And merry larks are ploughmen's clocks,  When turtles tread, and rooks, and daws,  And maidens bleach their summer smocks  The cuckoo then, on every tree,  Mocks married men; for thus sings he,  Cuckoo!  Cuckoo, cuckoo! - O word of fear,  Unpleasing to a married ear!

The Witch 06:21
Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble. Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg and howlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn and caldron bubble. Cool it with a baboon's blood, Then the charm is firm and good.

Part 1 When I do count the clock that tells the time,  And see the brave day sunk in hideous night;  When I behold the violet past prime,  And sable curls all silver'd o'er with white;  When lofty trees I see barren of leaves  Which erst from heat did canopy the herd,  And summer's green all girded up in sheaves  Borne on the bier with white and bristly beard,  Then of thy beauty do I question make,  That thou among the wastes of time must go,  Since sweets and beauties do themselves forsake  And die as fast as they see others grow;  And nothing 'gainst Time's scythe can make defence  Save breed, to brave him when he takes thee hence. Part 2 No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change:  Thy pyramids built up with newer might  To me are nothing novel, nothing strange;  They are but dressings of a former sight.  Our dates are brief, and therefore we admire  What thou dost foist upon us that is old,  And rather make them born to our desire  Than think that we before have heard them told.  Thy registers and thee I both defy,  Not wondering at the present nor the past,  For thy records and what we see doth lie,  Made more or less by thy continual haste.  This I do vow and this shall ever be;  I will be true, despite thy scythe and thee.

Spring and winter (Part 2) When icicles hang by the wall,     And Dick the shepherd blows his nail, And Tom bears logs into the hall,     And milk comes frozen home in pail, When blood is nipp'd, and ways be foul, Then nightly sings the staring owl,                     To-whit! To-who!—a merry note, While greasy Joan doth keel the pot. When all aloud the wind doe blow,     And coughing drowns the parson's saw, And birds sit brooding in the snow,     And Marian's nose looks red and raw, When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl, Then nightly sings the staring owl,                     To-whit! To-who!—a merry note, While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May, And summer's lease hath all too short a date; Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines, And often is his gold complexion dimm'd, And every fair from fair sometime declines, By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd: But thy eternal summer shall not fade, Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st, Nor shall Death brag thou wand'rest in his shade, When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st. So long as men can breathe or eyes can see, So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Claudia 03:33
Claudia Who is Claudia? What is she?     That all our swains commend her?  Holy, fair, and wise is she;     The heaven such grace did lend her,  That she might admired be.  Is she kind as she is fair?     For beauty lives with kindness:  Love doth to her eyes repair,     To help him of his blindness;  And, being help'd, inhabits there.  Then to Claudia let us sing,     That Claudia is excelling;  She excels each mortal thing     Upon the dull earth dwelling:  To her let us garlands bring.  William Shakespeare
