Hamlet and Shakespeare are What Make my Day

Early mornings with Colombian coffee is how I start my day

Early dog walks with Luna and Rocky is how I get energized

Warm water over my body is how I get prepared for the day

Early breakfast with Reading Lolita in Tehran is how I come alive

A long morning drive is what annoys me on Highway 183

Geography at 9 AM is what makes me want to leave

Can’t wait for my late afternoon with Professor Thorne

She puts a smile on my face as soon as I walk in

Afternoons with Shakespeare is what makes me excited

Afternoons with Hamlet is what makes me blink

Professor Thorne’s readings are what make me want to stay

Reading and reading and reading is what brings joy to my heart

My content comes from British Literature

My content comes from Literature and writing and that is what makes me get up every day

Professor Thorne’s readings are what make my day
