12th Night Explication
I left no ring with her. What means this lady?
Fortune forbid my outside have not charmed her!
She made good view of me, indeed so much
That sure methought her eyes had lost her tongue,
For she did speak in starts distractedly.
She loves me, sure! The cunning Twelfth Night Explication
of her passion
Invites me in this churlish messenger.
None of my lord's ring? Why, he sent her none.
