    • William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet, translation Josef Václav Sládek, Act 2 Scene 2
      Škraboška noci zakrývá mi tvář,
      že není vidět, jak se červenám
      kvůli těm řečem, které's vyslechl.
       
      Thou knowest the mask of night is on my face;
      Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek
      For that which thou hast heard me speak to-night.
