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! 🙂
