Sonnet 1: My Fair Hermia

My fair Hermia I feel such love for thee.

Why must thou to me act so scornfully,

When I would care for thee till eternity.

I will be with thee forever, hopefully.

Why must thou deny this great love that I feel?

Thou hast caused me ever such horrific pain,

And it will take so long for me to heal,

But for your love I will forever campaign.

Relent to your father’s will my sweet girl,

Or thou shalt feel the wrath of our great Duke.

I would capture thee many a beautiful pearl,

And my love you could not possibly rebuke.

Why must thou love he who is called Lysander?

When I speak to thee with love and candor.
