Quotation by Shakespeare

Was it the proud full sail of his great verse,
Bound for the prize of all too precious you,
That did my ripe thoughts in my brain inherse,
Making their tomb the womb wherein they grew?
Was it his spirit, by spirits taught to write
Above a mortal pitch, that struck me dead?
William Shakespeare (1564–1616), British poet. Was it the proud full sail of his great verse (l. 1–6).
