“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?
    But when we play the fool, how wide
    The theatre expands! beside,
    How long the audience sits before us!
    How many prompters! what a chorus!
    Adeline
