Thou hast by moonlight at her window sung
With feigning voice, verses of feigning love,
And stol’n the impression of her fantasy
With bracelets of thy hair, rings, gauds, conceits,
Knacks, trifles, nosegays, sweetmeats – messengers
Of strong prevailment in unhardened youth.

– William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 1, Scene 1. Egeus accuses Lysander of wooing his daughter by pretending to love her by singing at her window by moonlight. He says that he recited fake love poems, offered her various gifts, and even gave her a lock of his hair. All designed to influence an innocent child. Egeus is maintaining that Lysander’s so-called love is not true, but an illusion.
