"At first he mirrored plays that he could see
on every London stage, where it would seem
he mimicked Marlowe’s line – then suddenly
amazed the world with his Midsummer Dream.
Then late in life, in sorrow he’d explore
man’s evil heart and in his fury rage
in violent voices never heard before –
to mount his scenes of horror on the stage.
But how from clever mimicry he’d go
to sudden glory, no one would ever know.
