i spy thee ever changed chameleon

and oh my willful wilding heart

you breathe a want in me

flung high your shimmering fairie dust

dark the lustful longing as it fell


soft whisper fine hyperbole

allaying every plan discreet

each other virtuous conduct sweet

fast faded into loveless mist

not hampered by your sensuous kiss


cover my grave with heather then

prepare my stone and

pray for me for i have sinned

my inward nature you've sorely pricked

dissolving my resolve lightening quick


i would cry out before i die

but my tears are not bespoken

no token of blameless love

but only the heedless care

of the chameleon's mystery of what's not thereImage

why thank you for the couplet Quill

it's lovely ;-D

u and Shakespeare have much in common


quillpena Jan. 30, 2012 @ 12:31 a.m.

I love Shakespeare, even though I find him very difficult to read and comprehend. All those confusing "wheretos" and "art thous." I try to force myself to read him because it's literature and there are so many beautiful passages in his plays, but it's hard work, and I simply can't read them for pleasure.


nan shartel Jan. 30, 2012 @ 10:31 a.m.

aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh...i read his best..was an English Lit and language semantics and language in general

old English Scots and Welsh is even harder to read

Burns is a killer!!


quillpena Jan. 30, 2012 @ 12:21 p.m.

Burns is great. "O my Luve's like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June ..." well, you know the rest.
