William Shakespeare. 1564–1616
138. Take, O take those Lips away
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,         5
              Bring again; 
Seals of love, but seal'd in vain, 
              Seal'd in vain!
