Doubt thou the stars are fire

Okay, technically, this is not poetry. Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays and probably also one of his more difficult ones. The plot, the psychology, the language, … All these elements makes this one of the most studied plays in the world. But me? I like it because it is poetical. To me, this play is poetry. Let this text be the evidence of that.

Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.

William Shakespeare
