"When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes." ~William Shakespeare, Henry V
Perhaps these are all in the same scene, I have not read Henry V yet in English class and I dare not read it without the aid of the class and teacher, not that Shakespeare is normally a challenge - I read A Midsummer Night's Dream (adored it), Romeo and Juliet (that story has always made me nervous due to all that miscommunication, but I am all for Westside Story!), Macbeth (interesting and not a bad read), and I could've sworn I've read another but I cannot remember it - but I hear Henry V is supposed to be a doozy as is Hamlet, which we also will be reading. But so far I have noticed that ol' Will really liked ponies when writing Henry V. I like them, too, Shakespeare.
I've always liked Shakespeare. I also liked Captain Shakespeare in Stardust. And what horse-lover doesn't like Shakespeare RSF, winner of the most recent and the United States' first 70-day Stallion Test? That's a Shakespeare we can all get used to! I know Greta was crushing when she saw his pin-up (well, it was really just a Warmbloods Today cover).
