Philip Dodd (philipdodd) | 49 comments The Bard's Birthday

Today is Thursday, 23rd, April, 2015, Saint George's Day, here in England. It is also William Shakespeare's birthday. To celebrate, here are some lines from the Bard himself:

Forsooth, tis my birthday today,
I Will was born in April
on the twenty third day,
merry was I as the green wood in May,
so to yon tavern,
bring barrels of ale to laden a wagon,
for tis also the day we remember,
Saint George slew the dragon.

Though I type on my new fangled laptop,
methinks, still I prefer the quill and the pen,
I Will, master of blank verse and the sonnet,
the like thou wilt not see again.

Thy most humble, celebrated Bard,
William Shakespeare
