Poem by Vachel Lindsay


Shakespeare


Would that in body and spirit Shakespeare came 
Visible emperor of the deeds of Time, 
With Justice still the genius of his rhyme, 
Giving each man his due, each passion grace, 
Impartial as the rain from Heavens face 
Or sunshine from the heaven-enthroned sun. 
Sweet Swan of Avon, come to us again. 
Teach us to write, and writing, to be men.
