Basketball, Concerts... Willie Shake?

This week I have 4 basketball games, a choir concert, and an orchestra concert mixed with homework, but I'm claiming this day to keep things in line. I realize this is a spare post, but hey, here's a great sonnet by old Shaky to entertain you while I'm away:

~~~

Sonnet 55

Not marble, nor the gilded monuments
Of princes, shall outlive this powerful rhyme;
But you shall shine more bright in these contènts
Than unswept stone, besmeared with sluttish time.
When wasteful war shall statues overturn,
And broils root out the work of masonry,
Nor Mars his sword nor war's quick fire shall burn
The living record of your memory.
'Gainst death and all-oblivious enmity
Shall you pace forth; your praise shall still find room
Even in the eyes of all posterity
That wear this world out to the ending doom.
   So, till the judgment that yourself arise,
   You live in this, and dwell in lovers' eyes.

By William Shakespeare

Take care,

~LAEvanesce
