Shakespearean Sonnet


He was fond of reading classical books He used to peruse poets of olden time Sitting in the fields in the shady nooks In the eager days of an ardent prime He traveled far and wide in his studies Homer, Hesiod, Dante, Aeschylus Sophocles, Sappho and Europides Virgil and Ovid and Propertius Chaucer and Langland and Kid and Marlowe Donne and Milton, Spenser and Shakespeare Keats and Shelley and the Scottish fellow Byron and Nature's priest, Hardy and Clare They edified crude into burnished gold Certainly, books are a mightier hold. © Safdar Bhatti Pakistan (Best Entry of Exceptional Writing)
