Happy Birthday Shakespeare, April 23rd

See my tree after 6 years!

❤ ❤ ❤

Like Shakespeare’s

Pyramus and Thisbe

I wait for you under

The Mulberry tree

Fingers stained with

Sweet red juice

Not blood like his

Star-crossed lovers

But when you do not appear

I understand

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

The play within a play

I understand…

❤ ❤ ❤
