Choose one of the famous bards (William Shakespeare, Robert Burns, William Cowper, William Wordsworth, Alexander Pope). Now pick out a poem, or perhaps a quote (that inspires you best) from their works and prepare to launch into battle!
“The world forgetting, by the world forgot.” Alexander Pope
Some loves are unforgettable
like Cleopatra and Mark Antony
loves to go down in history.
Some loves of great beauty
expected to endure through thin and thick,
alas were more like Liz and Dick.
Then there is the love of you and me,
by the world not unforgettable
or by us regrettable
But a good love, lasting love though
the world forgetting, by the world forgot
our children and theirs will not.
