No special allusion to the text here, just spreading the links for Tim Bray who periodically drops a Shakespeare reference into his otherwise highly geeky blog.
Oh, all right:
First, from the park let us conduct them thither;
Then homeward every man attach the hand
Of his fair mistress: in the afternoon
We will with some strange pastime solace them,
Such as the shortness of the time can shape;
For revels, dances, masks and merry hours
Forerun fair Love, strewing her way with flowers.
– Biron, Love’s Labour’s Lost
