Shakespeare

The Centre

Note: the photo just made me think of Titania sleeping in a flower - a little homage to Shakespeare

Four hundred and fifty years
To celebrate Shakespeare's life
His words are still spoken
Around the world

He spun the English language
Inventing words to fit his rhythms
And to best express his thoughts
We use them still

Ideas still fresh
To the modern ear
His plays do not grow old
Their messages ageless

So great bard
I salute you on your birthday
Four hundred and fifty years young
And still going strong
