English Poetry I: From Chaucer to Gray.
The Harvard Classics. 1909–14.

William Shakespeare

101. Take, O Take

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!
