We all know that Shakespeare is considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, playwright and poet that ever lived. I tend to disagree. I have read A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and I really do not see the spectacular side of Shakespeare’s poetry yet. And I really don’t get his raunchy sense of humor. Maybe his poetry will be more…appealing once I have read more of his plays. I doubt it, but I will try to be open-minded when it comes to Shakespeare. I tend to be antagonistic when I am faced with reading bestsellers or media spotlight material, whether it be movies, books, or music. My bias puts me in a tight spot, since I can’t be entirely sure of my feelings toward the famous (or infamous) object/subject I must form my opinion about. I have learned to love poetry in general, and I have found many poets that I like and associate with. 😉 Shakespeare isn’t one of them…yet. 🙂 Anyway, here is a couplet written by me when I was feeling inspired…it just came to my mind.
Is Love Eternal?
by Natalie Gorna
Though love stronger than death can be,
Loosen these bonds and set me free.
