English and the Englishman

written by: Anne G

 "not of an age, but for all time"

- Ben Jonson

 

English-the-man
forever enshrined

Shakespeare - the 'Bard'
vernacular scribed

 

William - the English
playwright sublime

Stratford-upon-Avon's
words for all time

 

Legendary playwright
tamer of shrews

Defining the language
through midsummer's night

 

Perfecting the Angles'
lingua of birth

Medieval beginning
Germanic the root

 

Committed to memory
in phrases and quotes

By wordsmiths and readers
of parlance beloved

 

"not of an age,
but for all time".

Why write?

I write because I am:

Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.

My intention:To poke, prod and provoke!

"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
