Text

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, bring again,
Seals of love, but seal'd in vain,
Seal'd in vain, seal'd in vain.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
Measure for Measure, Act 4, Scene 1
