Shakespeare In Love

Shakespeare in Love

What light is light, if Sylvia be not seen?
What joy is joy, if Sylvia be not by?
Unless it be to think that she is by,
and feed upon the shadow of perfection.
Except I be by Sylvia in the night,
There is no music in the nightingale;
Unless I look on Sylvia in the day,
There is no day for me to look upon.
She is my essence, and I leave to be,
If I be not by her fair influence
Fostered, illumined, cherished, kept alive.

Valentine, in The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare

Words, magical words,
Let the words of my love paint thy face.
May the beauty of your presence shine before me.
But there are no words.
Gone are the portrait, and my brush not by.
Swift is the dawn, swifter the set.
Magic no longer be.

- s.m. Timothy Kim, inspired by Shakespeare in Love
