Lyrics: William Shakespeare

My father had a daughter
Loved a man, but never told her love,
She let concealment, like the worm in the bud,
Feed on her damask cheek.
She pined in thought,
With a green and yellow melancholy;
She sat like patience on a monument,
Smiling at grief.
Was not this love indeed?
