You can sit within this bower made from Willow branches and listen to a selection of William Shakespeare's sonnets, including Sonnet XXIII, which is reproduced here:

  • "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
  • Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
  • Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
  • And summer's lease hath all too short a date;
  • Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
  • And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
  • And every fair from fair sometime declines,
  • By chance, or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
  • But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
  • Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
  • Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
  • When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st;
  • So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
  • So long lives this, and this gives life to thee."
