ProhibitedOBERON, king of fairies, solus

OOREBN, o rFiya Kgin, nsetre.


I wonder if Titania will be awakened.

Then the next thing caught your eye

What she must fall in love with extremely.


I would know if naaTiit aawek is eyt, dna if he is I would know what eth srift nhitg hse was. aevhWert é, ehs smtu be oeltpmylec in leov twhi es wno.



Here comes my messenger. What now, mad spirit?

5What night rules this enchanted forest now?

What you mean? Wtah cohav veha oyu headkeraw in ihts atpr of the eforst?


My mistress is in love with a monster.

Close to your narrow and hallowed shelter,

While she was in her sad sleeping hour,

A crew of patches, rough mechanics

10This work for bread on the Athenian stalls,

We met to rehearse a play

Intended for Theseus' big wedding anniversary.

The flatter thick skin of this sterile variety,

Which presents Pyramus in his sport,

15Left your scene and hit the brakes,

When I used it to that advantage,

An asshole I put in his head.

Soon your Thisbe must be answered,

And that's where my facial expressions come from. if they spy on you

20Like wild geese who steal the bird's eye,

Or reddish-brown crows, many in various types,

Rising and croaking with the cannon's report,

Unplug and sweep the sky like crazy

So, on seeing him, his companions flee;

And with our seal, here it falls and falls.


My missestir Tnitaai is in ovel hiwt a tremosn. Wheli hes war lseniegp in erh edb of efrlwos, a group of munblbig oidists, rhoug okmrnew mrfo neAths, got otehtger rbynea to reeeshar meos ypla eyth plna to perform in Tesuessh ddgnwei yad. The teutissdp eno, the uymaPsr in hrite lpya dapley, ensifihd its nesce nad etwn to sit on the usbshe to wait for your etnx suggestion. I asked thta nopoyitptru to tksic a yedsnko aedh in hmi. When it was determined for him to go bkca gsteona nad tkal to hsi hTiseb he left eth bsehus and vneoreey swa hmi. His Inefrds rna wyaa as stfa as sdkuc tecrtsa ewnh hyte aerh a urhsetn tgunohs.

I share on your hgdnifreet, atdciesdrt ttaes and eflt ewset

He kills! Athena cries and cries for help.

Your sense so weak lost with your fears so strong

Absurd things start to hurt.

By brambles and thorns on your piece of clothing,

30Some sleeves, some hats catching all things.

I continued to lead her in this scattered fear

And left the sweet Pyramus there translated.

When did that moment happen

Titania woke up and immediately loved an ass.

mauysPr rhete, faotmsrndre tion eosonme directly for ydnseok deah. Bei hatt eatcx mtnmoe, iaTtain kweo up e emmeltidiay lfel in vole ihtw imh, an sas.


35This turns out to be better than I could have imagined.

But have you ever caught the eyes of the Athenians?

With the love juice like I asked you?


ishT is ngogi eevn tbeter atnh I landpne. Btu avhe uoy put eth loev ijcue mofr the lessrol in the eyes of ttha tnehanAi as I ask you?


I took him while he was sleeping, that's over too

And the Athenian at his side,

40That when he woke up, she should be looked at hard.


eYs, I onfdu mih when he saw that lesopesa athst files arce of daoont eht haentnAi anwmo aws slpieneg deserves it. When he wakes up, he must see you.

Oh, why do you blame the one who loves you so?

Put such bitter breath upon thine bitter enemy.


hyW and you two drue to nsoeoem hwo vsloe you so uhcm? veaS that idkn of shhra elgunaag rfo yruo torsw meyne.


45Now I'm just blaming it, but I should use you worse.

For you, I fear, have given me cause to curse.

If you killed Lysander while he slept,

Be in the blood on the shoes, dive into the depths,

And kill me too.


I'm not sure what to do, but I'm not sure what to do, but I'm not sure what to do. If you want aeLsydnr and he saw npliegse, then eoryu yraelda until uryo lkasne in lobod. Yuo gihtm like llew loves rgtih onit a loohdtbab and llki me, oot.

50The sun wasn't so faithful to the day

Like him to me. Would he have stolen?

Of the sleeping Hermia? i believe so soon

All this earth can get bored, and the moon gets

Can crawl through the middle and thus displease

55His brothers at noon with the antipodes.

It can't be that you didn't kill him.

This is how a killer must look, so dead, so dark.

He schwa meor tufaflhi for me, tnha hte nus is very hte eyimatd. Wodul he vaeh was wyaa rofm me lehiw did i see please?

A uemrrdre usohld lkoo ikle uoy do, so elap and gimr.


This is how the murdered man must look and so do I

It pierced the heart with its stern cruelty.

60But you, the assassin, look so bright, so clear

Like that Venus in her glittering orb.

What does this mean for my Lysander? Where is he?

Ah, good Demetrius, will you give it to me?


tahW osde ttah vhea to do with my edyaLrns? Where is he? Oh, Godo eesturDim, will I find it from me?


I prefer to feed his carcass to my dogs.


I would give hrtrae ish creops to my gsdo.


65Out, dog! Out, mongrel! You push me beyond limits

Girl patience. did you kill him?

From now on you will never be numbered among the people again!

Oh, tell the truth, tell the truth, even for my sake

Did you see him awake?

70And you killed him while he was sleeping? O bold touch!

A worm, a viper, could not do so much?

An adder did this, because with a dual tongue

Like thine, O serpent, no viper has ever been stung.


Good photo, thanks! the yellow irnedv me to my wsti then. would you like me, ethn? Frör has gained a nice place in the city of vene escinord yuo.

Oh, oh, the pure of ouy! A ksean odulc does just like you. A knsae did it, esbeacu he didn't ask evre ahd a rmoe odfekr, igynl eonutg htna you ehav.


You spend your passion in misunderstood humor.

75I don't owe Lysander blood.

As far as I can tell, he's not dead either.


Yreuo ittgnge all redwk up over a denitisngrumdsan. Idtnd sick sdanLyre. As far as I know, ehs otn even added.


Please tell me he's okay then.

And if I could, what should I get for it?


If I had ldto uoy, I ahwt ldowu etg tou of that?


A privilege never to see me again.

80And of your hated presence I share.

Don't see me anymore, whether he's dead or not.


ehT ivegliepr by erven iesegn me angai. So I have to rate ryuo psiddsee cpanmoy. You will see me here whether he is or not.




There's no chasing her in this wild vein.

So I'm going to be here for a while.

Then the burden of worry becomes heavier

85For debts that sleep with sadness,

Which will now compensate to a small degree,

If I stay here per your offer.

(lay down and sleep)


I can go to your new eikl tish in a year. So I get tired here for a while. sasedSn estg swear if ouy ntehav had ouenhg leeps. Ill ytr lseep a etllit eehr.(DEMETRIOlsie dwno and sallf saelpe)


(ForROBIN)What have you done? you were completely wrong

90And put the juice of love in sight of true love.

Your missprison must be the inevitable consequence

Some true loves came true, and no false loves came true.


(ForROBIN)Why are you one? veouY did a ksatime nad ptu teh oevl-ujice on omnesoe seel, Oneosm swimming in ovel utlyr. ueBeacs of yrou etimkas osmnesoe rteu eolv utms vaeh uertnd bda, sitande this sanm lsafe lvoe ienbg product ntio a rtue olev.


So fate decides that a man keeps the faith,

A million fails, mistaking an oath for an oath.


In htta esca it is quite tafe. Tsath, the Eye of the Ordwl. oFr revye nma sow hualftfi to his true love, he will then rise uignnnr taerf an ftdiferne voler.


95Through the forest go faster than the wind,

And Helen of Athens, see, you find

She is very imaginative and pale with joy,

With sighs of love, it costs dear fresh blood.

By some illusion you see bringing them here.

100I will delight your eyes when she appears.

105hit with cupids bow and arrow,

Sink into your eyeball.

When he feels your love

Let it shine so beautifully

Like the Venus of Heaven.

110If you wake up when it's over

Ask her for help.

BONRITo the right.


captain of our fairy band,

Helena is here at hand,

And the youth deceived by me

115I appeal for a lover's fee.

Shall we see your tender suit?

Lord, what fools these mortals are!


AleHne is nbeayr, hiccups. The gynou nma owh I msookti ou de hist oen is ethehr oto, gegibgn she to oevl him. odhuSl we hawtc hits ioiurcsudl escen? Lrod, wtah flsoo ethes rltosam aer!


Stand aside. The noise they make

Go wake up Demetrius.


pEST edias. hte iesno ertyhe nmgkai lwil ekaw up eietrsumD.


120So two at once woo one.

That has to be the sport alone.

And those are the things I like the most

This happens absurdly.


hnte eh dois deles tbho euspru noe girl. That will be nuyf hugneo, and etsrrosppoeu tiiutonsas are my toairvfe nghit.




Why do you think I should hold in contempt?

125Mockery and mockery never reach tears.


Why do you think I leave you, nehw I let you fly? pPeelo don't cry with your eyes erhtey omgickn nosmeeo.

See when I swear I cry. And swear like this born

At your birth, all truth appears.

As these things in me may seem mockery to you,

Wear the badge of faith to prove they're true?

Lkoo, if I atth I olive oyu aersw, I ryc, and if oneomes reics wlieh sie akingm a spierom, he sylualu lngelti hte rhtut. Who can see it as iikle Im animgk nfu de yuo, hnwe my trase opvre htat Im scnriee?


130You keep pushing your cunning.

When truth kills truth, O devilish holy battle!

These vows are Hermias. you agree with her

Weigh oath with oath, and you will weigh nothing.

Your wishes for her and me, weighed in two scales,

135It will even weigh, and both as light as fairy tales.

I had no judgment when I swore to her.

Neither in my opinion, now you give her the offer.

Demetrius loves her and he doesn't love you.

(wake up)O Helena, goddess, nymph, perfect, divine!

140To what, my love, shall I compare your eyes?

The crystal is muddy. Oh how mature on the show

Your lips, those kissing cherries, look tempting!

That pure and coagulated white snow of high Taurus,

Scattered by the east wind, it turns into a crow

145When you raise your hand Oh let me kiss you

This princess in pure white, this seal of bliss!


(ainwgk on)Oh Heelna, you descendant, your night is often not satisfied! atWh nac I rcaempo Running Eyes to? trlyaCs is as real as Hyte rea.

Oh, lte me ikss uyro ltiubeauf twhei nhad. It makes me so excited!


O challenge! Oh hell! I see you're all bent over

To fight with me for your joy.

If you were polite and knew politeness,

150You wouldn't hurt me so bad.

You can't hate me like I know

But you also have to gather souls to mock me?

If you were men, as men you are on the show,

You wouldn't use a nice lady like that


mDan it! I ese oyeru lal ndermetied to attack me or some ghalus. If you ever ahd yna esranmn, uoy udntwlo tatre me ikel itch. atnC uoy sjtu ahte me how I wish you? Do you want to make me go away?

155Swear and swear and praise my parts

When I'm sure you hate me with all your heart

You are rivals and love Hermia,

And now the two rivals mock Helena

A tight holding, a male company,

160To put tears in a poor maid's eyes

With your mockery! None of the noble kind

I would insult and blackmail a virgin like that

A poor soul of patience, all to make you sport.

You are cruel, Demetrius. Don't be so.

165Because you love Hermia. you know that, i know that

And here, with all my good will, with all my heart,

In Hermia's love, I give you my share.

And yours from Helena bequeaths me,

Who I love and will do until I die.


Don't be cruel, ScheimiurDt. I know you develop evol rhemia and you know I don't. hitRg eerh, hgtri own, I sreaw Im gingvi up all my iacslm on ehr nda idgnnha hre to oyu. In aencxghe, vgie ruoy mlcai para leov eeHnal, nscei I take reh e voel her until I die.


170Never again did I waste idle breath on scoffers.

Lysander, keep your Hermia. I am not going.

If I ever loved her, all that love is gone.

My heart goes out to her, but as a guest resident,

And now for Helen has come home,

175to stay there.

Helena, it's not like that.

Don't slander the faith you don't know

So that you do not love at your own risk.

Look where your love is going. There's your love.


Dtno isntlu a epde elov hatt uoy tdno ndtaendsru or llouy pay eht iprec. Wenn, rhee cesmo has nmaow uoy ovle.




180Dark night that deprives the eye of its function,

The ear makes things more tangible.

while impairing the sense of sight

She pays the audience twice her salary.


Ist hrad to ese lelacyr in eth kdra of gniht, tbu is eaisre to ahre wlle.

You will not be found by my eyes, Lysander.

185My ear, thank you, brought me to your sound

But why did you make me so cruel?

I loutdcn that uoy, ensLadyr, übt I ehrad ruyo cevoi, and taths woh I udnfo yuo. Why are you taking Elnoa so far away from me?


Why should he stay, whom love urges to go?


Why ytas nweh lveo you still want to go?


What love could incite Lysander to my side?


utB wtha loev ucold kmea my eLsdnayr me veale?


Lysander's love didn't keep him waiting

190Beautiful Helen, who gilds the night more

Than all your Oes of fire and eyes of light.

why are you looking for me couldn't let you know

Did the hatred I feel for you make me leave you like this?

You don't talk like you think. It can not be.


Let's get our ropes. It's peobsimlis.


195See, she is one of that confederacy!

Now I realize they connected all three

Doing this sport wrong despite me.

Wounding Hermia! Most ungrateful employee!

You conspired, you invented with these

200To lure me in with this filthy mockery?

It's all the advice we both share

The sisters swear the hours we spent

If we blame the rushed time

Goodbye weoh, is everything forgotten?

205All school friendship, childlike innocence?

We, Hermia, like two artificial gods,

Have with our needles a flower

Both in a sampler, sitting on a cushion,

Both sing a song, both in the same key,

210As if our hands, our sides, voices and thoughts,

It was embedded. That's how we grew up together

Like a double cherry that looks split

But a union in division

Two beautiful berries formed on a stem;


So check out isht too! i'll see that lal heetr from tmhe eahv ntotge rthtegoe to yapl shit rluec cktri on me. uuHfrlt emiHra, uoy laugrutnfe lrgi, hvae uoy nisocpred com teshe two to krvoeop me thiw this birerhol nstgiea? aevH yuo gfeoortnt lal het astlk evwe ahd ogrteteh, teh sowv we emad to be ilek isrsste to eon anetohr, lla teh urhso we tpnes rehottge, iisghwn atht we rveen hda to ysa eyvdheaobgo you oenorgftt? urO hnsdfpirie in oru yldosacohs, uro hdodihcol noceniecn?

We would like to rtegetoh eilk wint cerershhiicwh make me be spaced but also ewttrtohgoe eovlly hsrcreei in a mtes.

215So, with two apparent bodies, but one heart,

Two of the first, like cloaks in heraldry,

Due to only one and crowned with a coat of arms.

And you will destroy our old love

Mocking your poor friend along with the humans?

220It's not friendly, it's not virginal.

Our sex, just like me, can blame you for

Though only I feel the pain.

We must separate Eibdos, but we have enough Rheta. Would you like to die on the other side of someone else's infifdsre to ltinsu our oorp drneif? It's ont drlyfeni, not this ont iedalalkyl. llA namew uwdlo be straight angry if you call him though i'm a nylo swho turh for him.


I am in awe of your passionate words.

I don't despise you It seems you despise me.


I'm oemcptleyl fuddmundoeb about what royue aysing. I'm not sutlining uyo. It's more klie yorue utlgnsini me.


225You didn't pose Lysander as if you were mocking,

To follow me around and compliment my eyes and my face?

And her other love, Demetrius

Who rejected me with his foot now

To call me goddess, nymph, divine and rare,

230Precious, heavenly? That's why he says that

For her he hates? And why Lysander?

Deny your love so rich in your soul

And truly give me affection

But through your attitude, through your consent?

235What though I'm not as kind as you

So hung with love, so happy

But the most miserable of loving unloved?

You should feel sorry for it instead of despising it.

I don't understand what you mean by that.

240yes, make persistent, fake sad looks,

Talk to me when I turn my back

Wave to each other, hold the sweet joke

This sport, well spent, deserves to be registered.

If you have piety, grace or good manners,

245You wouldn't make an argument like that to me.

But goodbye. It's partly my own fault

Which death or absence will soon remedy.

You can't force more than she asks.

Your threats are no more powerful than your feeble prayers.

255I love you In my life, I do.

I swear on what I'll lose for you

To prove him wrong, who says I don't love you.

So Demetrius taunts with bitter injustice.

And let his eyeballs roll with their usual sight.

Next time they wake up, all that mockery

It will be a dream and a fruitless vision.

And the lovers will return to Athens,

385With a league whose date will never end until death.

While I keep you busy with this matter,

Sick for my queen and please her Indian boy.

And then I will release your charming eye

From the monsters' point of view, and all things will be at peace.
