  • Artist Info: Extract from Romeo and Juliet act 2 scene II<br />
    What light from yonder window breaks? <br />
    It is east, and Juliet is the sun.<br />
    Two of the fairest stars in all heaven<br />
    Having some business do entreat her eyes<br />
    To twinkle in their spheres till they return.<br />
    What if her eyes were there, they in her head?<br />
    The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars<br />
    As daylight doth a lamp, her eyes in heaven<br />
    would through the airy region stream so bright<br />
    that birds would sing and think it were not night<br />
    See how she leans her cheek upon her hand!<br />
    O that I were a glove upon that hand, <br />
    That I might touch that cheek!<br />
    -William Shakespeare<br />
    <br />
    Extract from In Memory<br />
    Serene and beautiful and very wise<br />
    most erudite in curious Grecian lore<br />
    you lay and read your learned books and bore<br />
    a weight of unshed tears and silent sighs<br />
    the song within your heart could never rise<br />
    Until love bade it spread its wings and soar<br />
    Nor could you look on Beauty's face before<br />
    A poet's burning mouth had touched your eyes<br />
    -Alfred Joyce Kilmer<br />
    <br />
    To Electra<br />
    I dare not ask a kiss<br />
    I dare not beg a smile<br />
    Lest having that or this<br />
    I might grow proud the while<br />
    <br />
    No, no, the utmost share<br />
    Of my desire shall be<br />
    Only to kiss the air <br />
    That lately kissed thee. <br />

    Secret Flowers<br />
    Is love a light for me? <br />
    A steady light,<br />
    A lamp within whose pallid pool I dream <br />
    Over old love-books? Or is it a gleam<br />
    A lantern coming towards me from afar<br />
    A lantern coming towards me from afar<br />
    Down a dark mountain? Is my love a star?<br />
    Ah me!- so high above so coldly bright!<br />
    The fire dances. Is my love a fire. <br />
    Leaping down the twilight muddy and bold?<br />
    Nay I'd be frightened of him. I'm too cold <br />
    For quick and eager loving. There's a gold<br />
    Sheen on these flower petals as they fold<br />
    More truly mine, more like to my desire<br />
    The flower petals fold. They are by the sun.<br />
    Forgotten. In a shadowy wood they grow<br />
    Where the dark trees keep up a to-and-fro<br />
    Shadowy waving. Who will watch them shine<br />
    When I have dreamed my dream? Ah, darling mine,<br />
    Find them, gather them for me one by one. <br />
