Romeo and Juliet, true love?
Are Romeo and Juliet really the most romantic of all lovers? Or is their love more folly, infatuation and teenage angst?
On Visiting Shakespeare's Birthplace
Hi I am Simon Cartlidge and I wanted to thank everyone at the trust for the most amazing day we had in Stratford visiting the houses. As a thank you I just wanted to share with you the poem I wrote inspired by the day called, fittingly enough; "On Visiting Shakespeare's Birthplace".
In reverence I cross the boarded floor
(This hallowed chamber I near fear to tread)
And glimpse the ancient manger, oaken carved
Wherein John Shakespeare's babe once laid his head.
