Before the day comes to a close, I’d just like to tell you that today, April 23rd is Shakespeare’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Bill. What would English have done without you?


The scratch of your pen brought tears…
Wicked daughters assailing poor Lear.
We laughed 'til we burst at the seams
At the mirth of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

We sat on the edge of our seats…
When Macbeth murdered Duncan the King
And you filled our hearts with love
When Juliet called to Romeo from above.

Your way with words leaves nothing to say,
But that you were the best, from then through today…

Mr. Shakespeare, happy birthDAY!
