Poetry Friday is hosted today by The Miss Rumphius Effect.

My selection is Winter Song by William Shakespeare. This song from Shakespeare's comedy "Love's Labour's Lost" is beautifully illustrated by Melanie Hall.

Here is a lovely way to introduce Shakespeare to young readers. The joys and trials of an Elizabethan winter find expression in Shakespeare's lively phrases and Hall's colorful double page spreads. Alice Provensen provides an introduction and glossary for the less obvious words and phrases.
