One of the things I love to read in the spring (yes, there are a couple of them) is my collection of Shakespearean sonnets.  I don’t know why, but poetry and spring are inextricably linked for me (which works out well, since April is National Poetry Month).

Though I love the plays, the sonnets are the thing for me.  I’m terrible at writing them, but Shakespeare was a master wordsmith and every time I open this book, I marvel at his ability.  I actually have two collections of his sonnets – the volume pictured is a complete collection, while the one it replaced contained only selected poems – and I treasure them both.

If you like Shakespeare’s poetry, might I recommend this site?  I found it the other afternoon and it’s got loads of neat stuff.  Spend a day getting lost in it, or perhaps another book.  Have a great day! 🙂

    My book of his sonnets is almost exactly the same as yours. And I know it’s a little boring of me but my favourite has always been: “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day…….”

      I love that one! I have a bunch of favorites, none of which are coming to mind at the moment because, despite the fact that it’s nearly 11:00 a.m., I’m still not yet properly caffeinated. 🙂
