If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumber’d here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream.
Gentles, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to ‘scape the serpent’s tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Puck a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.
Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, by William Shakespeare.
Did you know that I played the role of Puck in 2001 with The English Theatre Group of my University (yeah, the WHOLE version :tongue:). I keep good memories of that performance -in spite of everything :P-, and I am glad to see that my mates in that play remember that day as well. Now, we all send lost calls to each others’ mobile phones every Midsummer Night…
I wish you a nice Midsummer Night’s Dream too :violin:.
