Κι αν το χιόνι πάνω σου χυμήξει/ Κι όλη τότε σε καλύψει/ Αμέσως θα βγει μια ανεμώνα/ Κι εγώ κυπαρίσσι θα γεννώ/ Ψιλόλιγνο και λυγερό/ Για σε, μοναδική κρυψώνα
This is Shakespeare'e English; this is not OLD English, nor is this even MIDDLE English. This is "Early Modern English." You can just call it English. William Shakespeare-- Sonnet 18, Lines 1-3 "Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May..."
Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind Blow, blow, thou winter wind Thou art not so unkind As man's ingratitude; Thy tooth is not so keen, Because thou art not seen, Although thy breath be rude. Heigh-ho! sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly: Most freindship if feigning, most loving mere folly: Then heigh-ho, the holly! This life is most jolly. Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky, That does not bite so nigh As benefits forgot: Though thou the waters warp, Thy sting is not so sharp As a friend remembered…
