Be assured, dear lady, that this tale will be an oft-told one in years hence, and thou will be remembered as the queen.

Sorry, I see you more as a Chaucer chick.

The Folger Library has a kids section "Barbs from the Bard". We call it dirty word Shakespeare, or "new ways to insult your sibling" - kids love it! Here's the link: http://www.folger.edu/documents/KidInsults.pdf

That is a great link. My fifth-grade Shakespearean thanks you! She has already called me a "peevish, mad-bred rabbit sucker."

Juliet: Didst thou try to copist the feel?

Romeo: I wouldn’t dare touch the royal tomatoes.

Juliet: Then why for ist thy hands placed upon my bossoms?

Romeo: My dear lady, I intendth only to lendth support.

Juliet: Very well, if you must, lower.

Romeo: My lady, didst thou place thy hand into the pocket of my pantaloon?

Juliet: Indeed.

Romeo: And what for ist my dearest lady after?

Juliet: Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.

Romeo: If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

Juliet: Oh Baby!
