Thinking of the Bard on his Birthday!!

Sonnet No 104
To me fair friend you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I eyed,
Such seems your beauty still: three winters cold,
Have from the forests shook three summers' pride,
Three beauteous springs to yellow autumn turned,
In process of the seasons have I seen,
Three April perfumes in three hot Junes burned,
Since first I saw you fresh which yet are green.
Ah yet doth beauty like a dial hand,
Steal from his figure, and no pace perceived,
So your sweet hue, which methinks still doth stand
Hath motion, and mine eye may be deceived.
For fear of which, hear this thou age unbred,
Ere you were born was beauty's summer dead.

And the youth end their run of The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
I hope your bookmark is still in place for this chapter...

Always fun to spend an evening in the park with the Bard
Hi Shakespeare family,
During hurricane Florence we lost our home and most of the contents, including my home computer. I am looking for some photos that I lost from 2014 SOTG Youth show As You Like It and 2014 Journey Production of Sleepy Hollow. If any of you have any pictures from either show please email me at [email protected]. I am truly heartbroken about losing these precious memories. Thanks in advance, Kim Dillon (Sarah’s mom)
