Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night. Give me my Romeo, and when I shall die, Take him and cut him out in little stars And he will make the face of heaven so fine That all the world will be in love with night, And pay no worship to the garish sun.

William Shakespeare
