Eternal Lines : A Poem.

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was one of the greatest writers of English language, actor & the most famous playwright in the world. Known colloquially as 'The Bard' or 'The Bard of Avon,' he wrote 37 plays, 154 sonnets, 375 poems & 5 long narrative poems.

This poem is part of my tribute to the Bard of English Literature, William Shakespeare. I have drawn inspiration from one of his epic poems, 'Shall I compare thee to a Summer's day?', which happens to be an all-time favourite of mine.

The four prompts I used are : 
Summer's Day
Eternal Lines.
Eye of Heaven.

I also used a bonus prompt from 'The Midsummer Night's Dream' 
Winged Cupid.

Here's to the Bard, beyond compare;
the one and only Shakespeare.

Eternal Lines.

Celestial signs
from an eye of heaven
on a summer's day;

Eternal lines
of passionate possession
penned in paradise's way;

Luminal shines,
in winged cupid's haven,
as frowzled feathers sway.

Dazzling designs,
blinded in Eden,
in eyes of mind's display.
