Poetry Friday: Act IV, Scene 5 of Hamlet by William Shakespeare

OPHELIA
There's rosemary, that's for remembrance;
pray, love, remember:
and there is pansies. That's for thoughts.

LAERTES
A document in madness, thoughts and remembrance fitted.

OPHELIA
There's fennel for you, and columbines:
there's rue for you; and here's some for me:
we may call it herb-grace o' Sundays:
O you must wear your rue with a difference.
There's a daisy: I would give you some violets, but they withered all when my father died:
they say he made a good end --
(sung) For bonny sweet Robin is all my joy.

- from Act IV, Scene 5 of Hamlet by William Shakespeare
