Today, worldwide, people are celebrating William Shakespeare. One of my favorite celebrations was during my time in Chicago. My friend and I attended “shakespeare in the Park” where performances were held without set or scenery, however, they did have costumes.

While there are many sonnets that others rate as more popular than these, here are three of my favorite sonnets to share with you on this day. Just click on image of sonnet print to download an 8″x10″ pdf version. Huzzah!

Sonnet 60:
Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore

Sonnet 75:
So are you to my thoughts as food to life

Sonnet 145:
Those lips that Love's own hand did make
