Love is a wind that drives the will Across the yielding sand. Although at last the wave must break, The ride, the ride is grand. My love and need for you are such That surely you will go As far, as far as moon and tide Can still the undertow. As far, as far as wishes can Wear rock and stone away, So love will take you far across The bar on which you lay, Far further up the hot white sand On which we mortals play.

I'm not a huge Shakespeare fan, but I always liked this sonnet: When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes I all alone beweep my outcast state, And trouble deaf heaven with my bootless cries, And look upon myself, and curse my fate, Wishing me like to one more rich in hope, Featured like him, like him with friends possessed, Desiring this man's art, and that man's scope, With what I most enjoy contented least; Yet in these thoughts my self almost despising, Haply I think on thee, and then my state, Like to the lark at break of day arising From sullen earth, sings hymns at heaven's gate; For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings That then I scorn to change my state with kings. There's just something rich about it and it feels good to recite.
