A Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 2, Scene 2
Robin Goodfellow implants a curse onto Lysander so that he loves the next thing he sees (Helena).
"Amen, amen' to that fair prayer, say I and then end life when I end loyalty! Here is my bed. Sleep give thee all his rest!"
"[Be] it so, Lysander. Find you out a bed, for I upon this bank will rest my head. For my sake, my dear, lie further off yet. Do not lie so near."
"When thou wak'st, let love forbid sleep his seat on thy eyelid. So, awake when I am gone. For I must now to Oberon."
"Transparent Helena! Nature shows art, that through thy bosom makes me see thy heart."
"Do not say so. Lysander, say not so."
