The Bard passed from this earthly plane ... and on St. George's Day at that ... sniff ... but left such treasure as these.

"Alas, poor world, what treasure hast thou lost!"

"Adieu, and take thy praise with thee to heaven"

"I honour'd him, I lov'd him; and will weep my date of life out, for his sweet life's loss"

"If I must die, I will encounter darkness as a bride, and hug it in mine arms"

and my favourite ...

"All that lives must die, passing through nature to eternity"

... magic !

A toast to Stratford's gift to the world !!!! To the Bard !!!

"I can no other answer make, but, thanks, and thanks"

Wee Willie Winky,
Runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs,
In his night gown.

T.I.M. the Bard Stard 2004

I thank you

Strangely enough, it is often claimed that he was also born on Aoril 23rd!
