Homage to the Bard of Avon.
Ever since these words were first uttered on a stage -
Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
Do with their death bury their parents' strife.
The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
The which if you with patient ears attend,
What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
A million performances later, we are still mesmerised and star struck Finally the English language had come of age and Francis Bacon could rest , it could express everything French and Latin could, and it was magnificent [it was a language of love]. Whether we agree that this was written by a single individual or an invisible college of writers , we are still all in love.
