Would you like a sonnet?

Was it really 6 years ago that we clad ourselves in dresses and hats, read a big thick book by candlelight on the baseball field, and asked strangers if they’d like a sonnet?



Time flies too fast. 🙂


“When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes,

I all alone beweep my outcast state.

And trouble deaf heaven with  my bootless cries,

And look upon myself and curse my fate.

Wishing me like to one more rich in hope,

Featured like him, like him with friends possessed.

Desiring this man’s art and that  man’s scope,

With what I most enjoy contented least.

Yet in these thoughts, myself almost despising,

Haply I think on thee, and then my state,

(Like to the lark at break of day arising,

From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;

For thy sweet love remember’d such wealth brings,

That then I scorn to change my state with kings’.”

-Sonnet 29


Happy Birthday, William Shakespeare!

I love you, my girls!
