The Uncertain Glory Of An April Day


And not just any day. Today, April 23, is William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday. The line is from Act One, Scene III of “Two Gentleman of Verona.” Spoken by Proteus, who is comparing “the spring of love” to April’s “uncertain glory …. Which now shows all the beauty of the sun./And by a cloud takes all away.” All is well at this blooming weekend moment in front of Monument Hall, looking toward the Battle Monument.
