The Tempest – ACT V, SCENE I

Before PROSPERO’S cell.

Shakespeare by the Flea

ARIEL (sings and helps to attire him)
Where the bee sucks. there suck I:
In a cowslip’s bell I lie;
There I couch when owls do cry.
On the bat’s back I do fly
After summer merrily.
Merrily, merrily shall I live now
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.

Romeo and Juliet – Act II, Scene II

Capulet’s orchard.

Shakespeare by the Flea

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy father and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I’ll no longer be a Capulet.

Hamlet – Act II, Scene II

Doubt thou the stars are fine,
Doubt that the sun doth move,
Doubt truth to be a liar,
But never doubt I love.
