Sonnet 71 – William Shakespeare

Sonnet 71 – William Shakespeare

Every year on April 23, Stratford-upon-Avon and the world celebrate the birth of the most famous playwright in English history. The year 2014 marked the 450th anniversary of his birth. The birth of the playwright is marked every April 23, but experts disagree on whether that is true, as some believe baptism records of April 26, 1564, suggests that he was born three days before, as was typical, but others say it could not have happened so quickly.
It matters little to us who love his work this little anecdote about his birth. William Shakespeare left us a legacy unprecedented and will continue to amaze and fascinate new generations.


Soneto 71

Cuando haya muerto, llórame tan sólo
mientras escuches la campana triste,
anunciadora al mundo de mi fuga
del mundo vil hacia el gusano infame.
Y no evoques, si lees esta rima,
la mano que la escribe, pues te quiero
tanto que hasta tu olvido prefiriera
a saber que te amarga mi memoria.
Pero si acaso miras estos versos
cuando del barro nada me separe,
ni siquiera mi pobre nombre digas
y que tu amor conmigo se marchite,
para que el sabio en tu llorar no indague
y se burle de ti por el ausente.


Sonnet 71

No longer mourn for me when I am dead
Than you shall hear the surly sullen bell

Give warning to the world that I am fled
From this vile world with vilest worms to dwell:
Nay, if you read this line, remember not
The hand that writ it, for I love you so,
That I in your sweet thoughts would be forgot,
If thinking on me then should make you woe.
O! if, I say, you look upon this verse,
When I perhaps compounded am with clay,
Do not so much as my poor name rehearse;
But let your love even with my life decay;
   Lest the wise world should look into your moan,
   And mock you with me after I am gone.
