Poetry Friday - Love

In honor of Valentine's Day (yesterday) here's a little poetic quote from Shakespeare.

No sooner met but they looked;
No sooner looked but they loved;
No sooner loved but they sighed;
No sooner sighed but they asked one another the reason;
No sooner knew the reason but they sought the remedy;
And in these degrees have they made a pair of stairs to marriage...

Aww. No matter how silly some of the Bard's comedies, he redeems them with little gems like this.

As You Like It is one of my favorites. Rosalind and Orlando 4-ever! :)

And I adore the Bard's comedies.
