Treasure Island

William Shakespeare

(26 April 1564 - 23 April 1616 / Warwickshire)

Take, O take those Lips away


TAKE, O take those lips away,
   That so sweetly were forsworn;
And those eyes, the break of day,
   Lights that do mislead the morn!
But my kisses bring again,
   Bring again;
Seals of love, but seal'd in vain,
   Seal'd in vain!
