    O Proserpina,
For the flowers now, that frighted thou let’st fall
From Dis’s waggon! daffodils,
That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty; violets dim,
But sweeter than the lids of Juno’s eyes
Or Cytherea’s breath; pale primroses,
That die unmarried, ere they can behold
Bright Phœbus in his strength,—a malady
Most incident to maids; bold oxlips and
The crown imperial; lilies of all kinds,
The flower-de-luce being one.
          The Winter’s Tale. Act iv. Sc. 4. 2

    When you do dance, I wish you
A wave o’ the sea, 3 that you might ever do
Nothing but that.
          The Winter’s Tale. Act iv. Sc. 4.

    I love a ballad in print o’ life, for then we are sure they are true.
