Is it thy will, thy image should keep open
My heavy eyelids to the weary night?
Dost thou desire my slumbers should be broken,
While shadows like to thee do mock my sight?
Is it thy spirit that thou send'st from thee
So far from home into my deeds to pry,
To find out shames and idle hours in me,
The scope and tenor of thy jealousy?
O, no! thy love, though much, is not so great:
It is my love that keeps mine eye awake:
Mine own true love that doth my rest defeat,
To play the watchman ever for thy sake:
For thee watch I, whilst thou dost wake elsewhere,
From me far off, with others all too near.

Fantasy Dinner Party Guests

William Shakespeare: (Come on, with this domain name, did you think he wouldn't be there?). A moment in his presence would be divine. I'd love to listen to his tales of The Globe and Elizabethan society.
Livia Drusilla: Wife of the Roman Emperor Augustus, she has been popularised as a murderess. It would be interesting to find out if she really was a skilled poisoner, and as beautiful as was claimed.
Germaine Greer: Feminist literary critic. Outspoken and always controversial, she'd ensure the evening went with an intellectually stimulating bang.
Fred Astaire: So the evening could end with the last Waltz, impeccably danced.
