My Favorite Poem by William Shakespeare

Spring and Winter by:William Shakespeare

When icicles hang by the wall,

and Dick the shepherd blows his nail,

and Tom bears logs into the hall,

and milk comes frozen home in a pail,

When blood is nipp`d, and ways be foul,

then nightly sings the staring owl

To-whit! To-who!a merry note,

While greasy Joan doth keel the pot

When all aloud the wind doe blow,

and coughing drowns the parson`s saw,

and birds sit brooding in the snow,

and Marian`s nose looks red and raw,

when roasted crabs hiss in the bowl,

Then nightly sings the staring owl,

To-whit!To-who!a merry note

When greasy Joan doth keel the pot

To the right is a famous quote by William Shakespeare
