‘Tis the Bards 447th birthday

447 Years Ago – a sonneteer was born
To the harsh world, but to a loving family
447 years ago was 1616 and the Americas were new and so was he
Little did the family know that 447 years later their son would be remembered
Remembered as one of the greatest writers of all time
But to this day, Shakespeare is still alive and still kicking
But in his literature – his literature which lives forever
