Most people across the world have heard and maybe read many of Shakespeare's works..enjoyed their words...heeded their content..for much wisdom is contained therein...pearls of life strung on a string....

It Begins

Away away
Henry V did say
As into battle he did go
Storming walls of Honfleur
With many merry men

Shakespeare wrote all this
History of English monarchs too
Able he was to write on any subject
Just as I do

Fantasy in Midsummer's NIght Dream
Murdering doings are Hamlet's theme
Merry Wives of Windsor
Strutting cross the stage
Men in women's clothing seen

Hamlet to be or not to be
Perhaps that way we wish to see
To know or not
What life holds in store

History

All this and more
He could well do
Mighty handle on words
Themes and knowledge too

I often wonder how he knew....

Some think a ghost writer he did have
Never this can be proved
For historical truth cannot be gleaned
No matter where you go

It really is of no import
His writings still with us
Who wrote them if not he
Long dead ....history

Order of the day

Left to us brilliance
In word and deed
Few his knowledge can exceed
Masterly in every way

Out of no-thing could pluck words
Twist them
Shape them
Add unto
Till they became
Masterpieces of verse
A play for every season
Sonnets for every reason
Even for the queen

At Globe Theatre players performed
All men of course
Women not allowed on stage
Such was the order of that age
A very silly one!

Future .....

So what do we have today
In little playhouses around
Much mockery goes on
Really no different happenings
To what went on before

I wonder oft what will come
As through the years we go
Will books get burned
Or some such things
As has been done before

When just a few in power rule
Their dogma and their creed
Blared out for everyone to hear

Perhaps there will still be few of us
In secret we will write
And share the freedom of our words
With others willing to hear

Who knows.......

not many other writings have survived to be still studied in schools like Shakespeare is.

His writing was one of a kind, let's hope your writing survives five hundred years too, carolina.

It deserves too!

Good morning, Carolina, from your poem, "Out of no-thing could pluck words
Twist them
Shape them
Add unto
Till they became
Masterpieces of verse"
Regardless of who or how these words and works were written, they were and we are richly blessed to have them survive - much has been lost - libraries of ancient knowledge gone forever. Thank you for this tribute. ~Marilyn

Lovely and thought provoking, thanks Carolina. Masterpieces will survive in our hearts forever passed down the generations even by word of mouth. Literature adds to the spice of life though science may light our way - siva
