    LONG LIVE FULKE GREVILLE over WILLIAM SHAKESPEAR
    I am always rather pleased to know that the written works of Lord Fulke Greville are still held to be of great importance to scholars of the 21st century.
    In reading his private papers I find him to be of supreme wit and of great mind and I hope that the investigations continue as to just how important he really was with regards his writings and hope he will be recognised by all as the master of his time.

Best Poem of Fulke Greville

Caelica: Sonnet 22

I, with whose colours Myra dress'd her head,
I, that ware posies of her own hand-making,
I, that mine own name in the chimneys read
By Myra finely wrought ere I was waking:
Must I look on, in hope time coming may
With change bring back my turn again to play?

I, that on Sunday at the church-stile found
A garland sweet, with true-love knots in flowers,
Which I to wear about mine arm was bound,
That each of us might know that all was ours:
Must I now lead an idle life in wishes,
And follow Cupid for his loaves ...
