To hear words that are as sweet as cherry cola is a nice, warm, one-of-a-kind feeling. A sweet feeling that has been around for ages, like since the earth’s magnetic field and love have been making the world go round. A sweet feeling that many great poets always write about, because they believed that sweet nothings deserved to be immortalized in writing.

One of the greatest playwrights of all time is a great Italian called Williammo Shakespearelli and he is known for coming up with many quotable, rosy words. Just kidding, his name is actually William Shakespeare and he is not Italian. However, he really did write a great deal of words that can paint the sky in all shades of colors and that can make you feel all sorts of emotions. As you can see, Shakespeare was a wizard with words. That was his power and he used it for good. Even to this day, his charming words continue to bewitch us and we gladly swoon because we are then put under a spell once we hear them. So, in the spirit of this romantic Bard, let’s spread some Shakespeare loving with his most romantic lines.
