            So we grew together,
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted,
But yet an union in partition;
Two lovely berries moulded on one stem;
So, with two seeming bodies, but one heart,
Two of the first, like coats in heraldry,
Due but to one and crowned with one crest.
            —William Shakespeare

            Join they all together,
Like many clouds consulting for foul weather.
            —William Shakespeare

  Gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit.

  Together like the two kings of Brentford smelling at one nosegay.
