#11 Celebrating the Poets: William Shakespeare




Thank you to all of you who took part in the last theme challenge. Part, quite a big part, of learning the craft of poetry is reading the work of other poets both contemporary and the masters of the past. With that in mind it seems apt to celebrate the life and work of these influential writers in our own work so now and then I am going to post one as challenge. Who better then to be the first than the Bard himself, William Shakespeare.

Twelfth Night, Act 2, Scene 2

O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
O stay and hear! your true-love's coming
That can sing both high and low;
Trip no further, pretty sweeting,
Journey's end in lovers' meeting-
Every wise man's son doth know.

What is love? 'tis not hereafter;
Present mirth hath present laughter;
What's to come is still unsure:
In delay there lies no plenty,-
Then come kiss me, Sweet and twenty,
Youth's a stuff will not endure.

William Shakespeare
