In the Bard’s Memory

Charlestown State Park, Rose Island and the 1937 Flood
In the Bard's Memory
by Michael Doyle

There is something in elevated speech
That touches the depths of our souls
Keeping these words close within reach
Is truly something worthy to extol

It's something far greater than fallacy
To believe that words and phrases hold power
I say this openly and without any jealousy
That words from Shakespeare are in every hour

Split in the times we find ourselves living in
As much or more than the Holy Bible itself
I can only hope to be gracefully forgiven
As I implore you to leave neither on the shelf

Memorable passages each hold their sacred place
As blessings these are upon the likes of you and me
Utterances trembles from our mortal, earthly faces
As precepts to kept woven on lips in the Bard's memory
