"When icicles hang by the wall,
And Dick the Sheperd blows his nail,
And Tom bears logs into the hall,
And milk comes frozen home in pail..."

-Winter in Love's Labour's Lost

A comedy, Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost was first published in 1598, though it was most likely written in the mid 1590's. Around this same time, Shakespeare also composed two of his more popular plays, the comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream and the tragedy Romeo and Juliet.
