I forgot to say this yesterday,
But it has been 450 years
Of poetry, sonnets and plays,
So happy birthday, Shakespeare!
I have only studied Shakespeare twice,
One, Hamlet, and two, The Tempest.
But to realise he set so many foundations for the English language,
Is amazing – when you see how it has progressed!
Lines like “To be or not to be”,
Many people, it does amaze.
You have provided many with entertainment, and study opportunities,
So again, Happy Birthday!
