Puck You

Today I have decided to share one of my favourite Shakespearean quotes. These lines are from the final act and final scene of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” Indeed this short speech of Puck’s, are the final lines of the play and worth of quoting both in whole and in part.

Enjoy the Bard’s words and apply them to today’s entry in case this Blogger has thee offended…

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.
