Milton: A Limerick

 

It is said that John Milton was Blind

And the world that he served was Unkind

So he waited to See

Standing Gloriously

For he couldn’t go blind in the Mind

But Xanadu vanished Abeam

Of the pipe and the Puff

For the love of the Stuff

He imagined a higher Esteem

Frost (A Limerick)

When young Robert went riding his Sleigh

He came to a part in the Way

And like Erwin he Found

No one else was Around

So he took both ways and went Astray.

Happy Birthday, Will Shakespeare

There once was a playwright named Will

Whose spelling was practically Nil.

Whether Shaksper or Shakspere

Or Shakspe or Shakespeare,

Sweet Will paid his bill with a Quill.
