Monday Mystery

In honour of this crazy heat wave (or bubble/dome, as we’ve been hearing on the news), here is an appropriate quote from Shakespeare:

And summer’s lease hath all too short a date.

But what’s it from? Hint: it’s not one of his plays!

It’s a good quote to keep in mind, as we will inevitably miss the sun when it disappears for the winter. So enjoy the warmth while you can! (It’s good weather for Shakespeare in the Park.)

  1. This is from the very famous and rather lovely Sonnet XVIII ‘Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day’ – I can say this with confidence as I wrote an article about it with lots of links to Sonnet 18 online.

    Should you be interested in it, the article can be found here:

    I don’t always comment, but do enjoy the teasing of my bardic wits and the other info you put out during the week, so thanks again!
