Shakespeare’s epitaph reads:
“Good friend, for Jesus’ sake, forebear
To dig the dust enclosed here.
Blessed be the man who spares these stones,
and cursed be he, who moves my bones.”
For today, write your own epitaph. It can be to a person or a thing. It can be serious or funny. It can be short or long.
Post your poem to comments!
