William Shakespeare

Carpe Diem

O MISTRESS mine, where are you roaming?
O stay and hear! your true-love’s coming
    That can sing both high and low;
Trip no further, pretty sweeting,
Journeys end in lovers meeting—
    Every wise man’s son doth know.

What is love? ’tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
    What’s to come is still unsure:
In delay there lies no plenty,—
Then come kiss me, Sweet-and-twenty,
    Youth’s a stuff will not endure.
