Bonus Poem of the Day - by Shakespeare

"Caliban," from The Tempest, III, ii, 148-156

Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked,
I cried to dream again.

  1. Ah yes, Caliban! One of Shakespeare's best characters, and such speeches he gave that monster were what made this play the perfect ending to a amazing writing career. Great choice.
