Her Father’s Love

This is a really fun assignment for my Shakespeare class. We are supposed to re-arrange a part of A Midsummer Night’s Dream into something new. I am taking Lysander’s brief monologue, “You have her father’s love,” and creating a new poem from it.

Her Father’s Love

Sweet lady well possessed–
Fortune’s won her soul

Marry him

Spotted and inconstant man
Made love

Avouch her head with vantage!

Dotes to prosecute
Beauteous daughter
