Waxing Shakespeare again.  Wishing my Divas the best and safest of Labor Day weekends with the stars in our favour!! Namaste, The Queen Cronistsa

Sonnet 25: Let those who are in favour with their stars

BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Let those who are in favour with their stars

Of public honour and proud titles boast,

Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars,

Unlook’d for joy in that I honour most.

Great princes’ favourites their fair leaves spread

But as the marigold at the sun’s eye,

And in themselves their pride lies buried,

For at a frown they in their glory die.

The painful warrior famoused for fight,

After a thousand victories once foil’d,

Is from the book of honour razed quite,

And all the rest forgot for which he toil’d:

Then happy I, that love and am beloved

Where I may not remove nor be removed.
