    • I agree the last line has the flavor of Shakespeare He was in my mind when that line popped into my head: “A poet’s line for a coin.” Like the Bard there was a lot of scribbles over the line until it appeared as written above. A coin or coins were the most in Elizabethan time, one was compensated for one’s telling of tales.

      I do love Shakespeare in Love. It is on my list of films to rewatch. Should do it soon.

      Thank you for your remarks. Loved them. jk
