Portfolio | Become A Fan
Born on the banks of Avon, O! great Bard,
You were the Chosen One, by God assigned
With a celestial muse keeping your guard,
To delve into the depths of human mind.

From there you spun a tapestry so rich
With every sweep of vibrant human life
Lovers thwarted by hate's loudest pitch
Ambitious kings, naive men and scheming wife.

Wise women,coy virgins,conscience that claws
Men of all calling and courtiers who fawn
Timeless tales of men with fatal flaws
You told them too well,O!Bard of Avon.

Over the ages,in awe ever more
A Colossus astride centuries four.

Author Notes
450th birth anniversary of Shakespeare falls today.many of the most common expressions in our daily use come from his works,though we may not realise it.(More sinned against than sinned', 'salad days','tongue tied','hoodwinked','in a pickle','long and short of it' etc etc..the list is endless) This is my humble tribute to this literary giant.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
