William Shakespeare's Diary: 02/09/1573

Delve into the life of a young Shakespeare

Good Morrow!

It was an early start today.  Well before sunrise did the farm animals wake me, so I sat a while watching and listening to the maids downstairs. They are always so busy!

Ah! It looks like Mistress Martha is going to pick some fresh apples. Mmm, I am hungry and I do love apples.  Do you think she would notice if I pinched one?


She noticed.  She birched me for each one I took.  Maybe I should ask next time?

Fare thee well.
