William Shakespeare Poems

All The World's A Stage

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,

A Fairy Song

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!

Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day? (Sonnet 18)

Nor the furious winter's rages,
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages;

O mistress mine, where are you roaming?
O stay and hear! your true-love's coming
That can sing both high and low;
Trip no further, pretty sweeting,

2016 has been named ''the year of Shakespeare & Cervantes'', since they died 400 years ago (***April 1616) and to underline how much the two writers have in common. ***Indeed, they died almost in the same day: both writers were traditionally thought to have died on April 23 (and for this reason this day became World Book Day) .
