A Hey Nonino - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

William Shakespeare
died in the seventeenth century
leaving a legacy of sonnets and plays.
Who could deny his sheer genius?
He will live in our hearts through the days.
His fine words flow; his beliefs they show.
as he wrote about beauty
and the cold winds that blow...
with a 'Ho and A Hey Nonino'.

'Who Is Sylvia? ' ~ a most popular poem.
'Midsummer night's dream' ~ a popular play.
I steal his words when I honestly say
Holy fair and wise was he; the heavens
such talent did lend him.

    I'm with you, he knew people and could read them like a book. A psychoanalysis before the word was conceived (Report) Reply
