That CONTEST that thou mayest here behold

The fourth and final contest for Brush Up Your Shakespeare Month is completely related to Shakespeare's poetry. The prize? Why, a paperback of The Folger Shakespeare Library Edition of Shakespeare's Sonnets.

Deadline to enter: Midnight (ET) on Tuesday, June 30th.

To enter: Post your favorite Shakespeare poem on your own blog, saying it's for Brush Up Your Shakespeare Month, and leave a link in the comments to this post.
That's it. It can be ANY Shakespeare poem (which includes poems and songs found within the 37 plays, any of the 154 sonnets, or a part of one of his longer poetic works (Lucrece or Venus and Adonis). Heck, I'll even accept dialogue in rhymed couplets or blank verse (unrhymed iambic pentameter). Just no prose dialogue, okay? (You'll know it when you see it - longer lines of uneven length, sometimes looking just like a regular paragraph. Or you can ask for a ruling if you're stuck.)

I can't wait to see what you select. Seriously. I sure hope lots of people will enter this one. The Puck in me likes the idea of spreading Shakespeare poems across the blogosphere.
