Sonnet CIV William Shakespeare To me, fair friend, you never can be old, For as you were when first your eye I eyed, Such seems your beauty still. Three winters cold Have from the forests shook three summers’ pride, Three beauteous springs to yellow autumn turned In process of the seasons have I seen, Three April perfumes in three hot Junes burned, Since first I saw you fresh, which yet are green. Ah, yet doth beauty, like a dial hand, Steal from his figure, and no pace perceived; So your sweet hue, which methinks still doth stand, Hath motion, and mine eye may be deceived. For fear of which, hear this, thou age unbred: Ere you were born was beauty’s summer dead.
Sonnet CXXIX William Shakespeare The expense of spirit in a waste of shame Is lust in action: and till action, lust Is perjured, murderous, bloody, full of blame, Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust; Enjoyed no sooner but despised straight; Past reason hunted; and no sooner had, Past reason hated, as a swallowed bait, On purpose laid to make the taker mad. Mad in pursuit and in possession so; Had, having, and in quest to have extreme; A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe; Before, a joy proposed; behind a dream. All this the world well knows; yet none knows well To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.
Sonnet CXL William Shakespeare Be wise as thou art cruel; do not press My tongue-tied patience with too much disdain; Lest sorrow lend me words, and words express The manner of my pity-wanting pain. If I might teach thee wit, better it were, Though not to love, yet, love to tell me so; As testy sick men, when their deaths be near, No news but health from their physicians know; For, if I should despair, I should grow mad, And in my madness might speak ill of thee; Now this ill-wresting world is grown so bad, Mad slanderers by mad ears believed be. That I may not be so, nor thou belied, Bear thine eyes straight, though thy proud heart go wide.
Sonnet CXIII William Shakespeare Since I left you, mine eye is in my mind; And that which governs me to go about Doth part his function and is partly blind, Seems seeing, but effectually is out; For it no form delivers to the heart Of bird, of flower, or shape which it doth latch: Of his quick objects hath the mind no part, Nor his own vision holds what it doth catch; For if it see the rud'st or gentlest sight, The most sweet favour or deformed'st creature, The mountain or the sea, the day or night, The crow, or dove, it shapes them to your feature. Incapable of more, replete with you, My most true mind thus maketh mine eye untrue.
Sonnet II William Shakespeare When forty winters shall besiege thy brow, And dig deep trenches in thy beauty's field, Thy youth's proud livery so gazed on now, Will be a totter'd weed of small worth held: Then being asked, where all thy beauty lies, Where all the treasure of thy lusty days; To say, within thine own deep sunken eyes, Were an all-eating shame, and thriftless praise. How much more praise deserv'd thy beauty's use, If thou couldst answer 'This fair child of mine Shall sum my count, and make my old excuse,' Proving his beauty by succession thine! This were to be new made when thou art old, And see thy blood warm when thou feel'st it cold.

"Primeira Mitose" dá continuidade ao estudo sonoro do músico Rossano (MG) denominado "Evento: Mitose", que apresenta perspectivas do encontro dos ritmos e Mitologia Afro-Brasileiros com a literatura de William Shakespeare.

Neste evento são apresentadas releituras de 5 dos 6 sonetos do 'Pancreas Mitose' (2016), mais uma peça representando um aspecto do caráter do Orixá denominado Obalúwàiyé (também conhecido como Onilewá, o Senhor da Terra). Aqui observados sob outra perspectiva, estes sonetos trazem elementos como voz, pássaros e insetos sustentando a harmonia e melodia.

Os ritmos, oriundos da Umbanda e Candomblé, desempenham a mesma função original de quando em cerimônias afro-brasileiras, ou seja, conduzir e ambientar o teor das histórias contadas - aqui especificamente os sonetos de Shakespeare. Essa proposição feita pelos ritmos afro-brasileiros através do agogô e surdo sugere a forma como os sonetos são interpretados, influindo diretamente em seus aspectos percussivos, inclusive na articulação dos fonemas e divisão das palavras e frases nos sonetos.
