Shakespeare Still Lives!

A glover's son in Midlands town
An inauspicious start
To a playwright of world-wide renown;
Great speeches learned by heart!

Brief mention on the BBC
Amid migration drama
400th anniversary
Shakespeare headlines Obama*!

The Globe theatre (now reborn)
Sees Hamlet strut the stage
The Bard still London takes by storm
His words will never age!

(c) Poet in the woods

1564-1616

*President Obama was in London
