For the Bard on his Birthday

P1140770.JPGToday, homage to William Shakespeare…….

she be but little she is fierce……a personal favorite…. A Midsummer Night’s Dream

I whispered this in my head yesterday at a knitting exhibition ….. There was a sheep shearing demonstration……sheep were waiting in an inside pen.   A tall cloth was hung, isolating them from people passing through the barn… a small gated doorway at the end was the childrens’ viewing corner.

The adults all easily viewed the sheep; me, I wasn’t tall enough at only 5′ to view amongst the land of giants………

The tour guide, with a bemused smile, pointed to the adults and told me I could look there……Then, stopped, realizing I wasn’t tall enough.

Thanks I said, sarcastically, I go to the childrens’ window……..

The childrens’ corner was a long wait.   Each toddler screamed and screamed……I want to see the sheep, not wanting to be forcefully taken in hand and dragged away.     This scenario repeated itself, lasting about 5-10 minutes of parental pleading, children crying, and temptations offered.

Finally, it was my turn.   I took my adult one minute of viewing time and stepped aside…….as the Bard spoke inside my head……

She be but little she is fierce………….Birthday Blessings Will……..I imagine you probably weren’t too tall yourself, back then…..
