    Ode to Psalm 46

    What is in a name, W.S., and why?
    A sultry sensory blast of sound
    Rising black sun from the sky

    What is to be or not to be?
    Exist as tragedies, done is done
    In the lives of he, she and me

    What is to lend me your ears, W.S.?
    Play on words, twisting quips
    To me it’s all Greek, I guess…

    What are the jaws of death?
    A way to trip and fall around
    The long pages of Macbeth

    Ode to the darling buds of May
    Which to fully understand them
    Takes ‘Forever and a Day’

    I should have posted this on Monday, but due to lack of entries, I'm extending this contest for another week. This means that the new closing date is Monday 12th September 2011.
