Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

by klparry

Hello Friends!

Today is a special day for lovers of word and theater. It is William Shakespeare’s 450th  Birthday!

“My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red, than her lips red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet by heaven, I think my love as rare,
As any she belied with false compare.”
― William Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s Sonnets

Check out William’s fan page on Facebook. Unbelievable that a 450 year old man has a Facebook page. Go figure :/

Good night, good night. Parting is such sweet sorrow that I’ll say good night until tonight becomes tomorrow – Write On!
