To be in love , where scorn is bought with groans ; Coy looks , with heart - sore
sighs ; one fading moment's mirth , With twenty watchful , weary , tedious nights :
If haply won , perhaps , a hapless gain ; If lost , why then a grievous labour won ...
Here is her hand , the agent of her heart ; Here is her oath for love , her honour's

For , in revenge of my contempt of love , Well , sir , this gentleman is come to me
Love hath chas'd sleep from my enthralled eyes , With commendation from great

"like a wood woman" might indeed have meant "frantic" or "wild" (with grief) which Launce mentions referring to the "shoe" which he adopts for the sake of illustration. However, Shakespeare, even at his earliest writings, was vastly entertained by double entendres and his love of puns is so well documented. In that time in Italy, women wore platform shoes which were raised to elevate the shoes from the mud and other unpleasant "stuff". These were called "chopines" and the platforms were constructed of wood. The higher the platform, the higher the pretentiousness of the lady. Her height could have put her above many others. Since Launce has his father and mother represented as shoes, this second meaning is certainly not outside of the possibility for Shakespeare's intention. Naturally, it would have had the effect of a rather "localized" and "temporary" idea, but the fact of its having been very popular in that day makes it a candidate for the Bard's delight.
