Haiku On The 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s Death

Save in this man’s case
the good he did still lives on
not interred with bones

    Great haiku. And a beautiful and clever use of his quote from Julius caesar ”the evil that people do lives after them ,but good is oft interred with their bones”. Cheers to Shakespeare.

    Behold, thou hast penned a perfect haiku in honor of the anniversary of William’s death!

    I so glad he was a player on the world’s stage. I took my first class in Shakespeare in high school and fell in love with his poems and plays! ๐Ÿ™‚

    HUGS!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks, Carolyn. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I too am glad that Shakespeare was a player on the world’s stage.

      Yes, I studied my first Shakespeare play in my Grade 10 English class- Romeo and Juliet.

      I, of course, had read Shakespeare’s plays on my own before then because my dad was a big Shakespeare fan.

      My dad had all the great BBC radio Shakespeare productions of the 1950s on old LP records with such greats as Sir Laurence Olivier and Sir John Gielgud.

    I got the kids version from my grandma and I still quote from it

      Would that be Lamb’s Tales From Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb?

      My parents had bought me that book when I was a kid.

    William will be Eternity born in every generation – he never dies …
    Forever the lover for all of us.
