A Sonnet to the Bard on the 400th Anniversary of His Death

On April 26th the Bard was born.
On April 23 the Bard did die.
How could the Bard be born after three morn’s
One, two, three — after the day he died?

Ironically, the Bard is born all th’ time
Even though he died four hundred years
Ago in time. Readers just continue to find,
He touches them with life’s joys and fears,

In rhyme and Iambic Pentameter.
And so after he died yet he lives on
And on and on in his great literature —
In tragedies and comedies, what fun!

So, let’s all go to see Falstaff
And Prince Hal and have such a great laugh.
