12 England will remember
Well,all that was thirty-three years ago.I'm an old man,and everyone is dying around me.Anne Shakespeare died in 1623,and John Hall went about twelve years later,fighting the plague Susanna's still alive,and Judith.She had three sons,but they all died.So there's no boy in the family to keep poor Will's name alive.Susanna's girl Elizabeth has had no children,and she's forty-one already…Susanna still comes to visit me sometimes,and we talk about the old days.
We live in sad times now;the Puritans cut King Charles's head off last January.But one day we'll have a king again.Then there'll be singing and dancing and plays.
You'll see.Oh yes.People won't forget William Shakespeare.In 400 years'time,the theatres will still be full.People will still laugh,and cry,over his plays.He was the finest poet that ever wrote in the English language.I think he knew that himself.There's some lines in one of his sonnets,I remember…
Not marble,nor the gilded monuments Of princes shall outlive this powerful rhyme…
