“ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE”


Shakespeare wrote what we’ve forgotten
Human beings act their way through life
Sweet, ripe fruit, with a few gone rotten
All walk the keen edge of Lucifer’s knife

    And then there was Walter Savage Landor- a riddle, can you find it?

The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
