How much time have you spent reading Shakespeare or Yeats this last year?

They're different category of communication with different expectations and boundaries.

Put a melody to the following and see if it makes it into the top forty.

"Can death be sleep, when life is but a dream,
And scenes of bliss pass as a phantom by?
The transient pleasures as a vision seem,
And yet we think the greatest pain's to die.

How strange it is that man on earth should roam,
And lead a life of woe, but not forsake
His rugged path; nor dare he view alone
His future doom which is but to awake."
