The Lyrics

Hamlet - Act IV, Scene V
Ophelia: How should I your true love know
True love know from another one?
By his cockle hat and by his staff
And his sandal shoon.
See'st thou
He's dead and gone
Lady, he is dead and gone
At his head a grass green turf
And at his heels a stone.

Refrain: 'Morrow is Saint Valentine's Day
In the morn betime
And I a maid at your window
To be your Valentine.
I pray you, I pray you
Let's have no word of this
When they ask you
What it means, say you this.

Then up he rose and donned his clothes
And he dupp'd the chamber door
Let in the maid, that out a maid
Never departed more.
By Gis and by Saint Charity
O alack and fie for shame!
Young men do what they come to
By cock they are to blame.

Refrain: Quoth she before you tumbled me
You vowed me to wed
I'd ha' done by yonder sun
Thou came not to bed.
Good night all, good night all, good night all

Well, it's nice that you too are hooked into Dusty/Bill, and here's the Dusty/Ophelia as promised, so props for that.

Still seems that we're on two different planets, though: reworking Shakespeare as needed, into the exact scansion of TOS, vs. just quoting Shakespeare verbatim, with about 2/3 of the lines or so scanning to TOS. The title was tweaked to scan to TOS; why not the rest? (Rhetorical question.)

Really, not too much creativity in just quoting Shakespeare word for word and calling it something else (unless it also scans, as it did betimes), but you *did* hit my fave speech of O's (Ophelia, not Obama) about the never-changing nature of men. (We can't help it; we're wired that way.) I've thought of that part often, and quoted it occasionally.

Since we're not shooting at the same goal, won't score it, but the more Shakespeare and other classics on the site, the better. Who knows, maybe kids will start "reading" them -- on their Kindles, or whatever. Keep on truckin'.

Thanks, Meriadoc - I didn't write it Shakespeare did. That's in the act where Ophelia is going nuts.
