summer roses in springtime rain

Work Text:

 

shakespearean version 

mine own midsumm'r night's dream

thee bloom'd a rose, like the springtime, in the 

deeps of mine own heart

with thy eyes like oceans and a 

smile like the shineth of starlight 

ov'rhead, illuminating

whilst i climb the balcony,

declaring myself to thee

mine own soliloquy, mine own romeo,

romeo

wherefore art thou romeo? i calleth

to beest thy juliet,

thy lady macbeth,

to behold liketh the s'rpent, 

but beest the flower above 't. 

 

my dearest love,

upon meeting thee i wast did strike,

as king duncan wast, through the chest

i hath kept 't to myself, yet

“...who could refrain,

that had a heart to love, and in that heart

courage to make love known?”

i find myself 

desp'rate to hold thee

to findeth myself in thy embrace

lips melting togeth'r 

as mountain snow und'r summ'r sun

"you have witchcraft in your lips," i say

the rose of youth upon us

and thus with a kiss i die

 

 

modern english version

my midsummer night's dream

you bloomed a rose, like springtime, in the 

deeps of my heart

with your eyes like oceans and a 

smile like the shine of starlight 

overhead, illuminating

whilst i climb the balcony,

declaring myself to you

my soliloquy, my romeo,

romeo

wherefore art thou romeo? i call

to be your juliet,

your lady macbeth,

to look like the serpent, 

but be the flower above 't.

 

my dearest love,

upon meeting you i was struck,

as king duncan was, through the chest

i kept it to myself, yet

“...who could refrain,

that had a heart to love, and in that heart

courage to make love known?”

i find myself 

desperate to hold you

to find myself in your embrace

lips melting together 

as mountain snow under summer sun

"you have witchcraft in your lips," i say

the rose of youth upon us

and thus with a kiss i die
