William Shakespeare is an English poet, widely known as the greatest writer in the English language. He was born in 1564, so the words he used can be unfamiliar to us. In addition, he would simply make up his own words if he thought they sounded good in a poem! One of his many famous plays is called Macbeth. In it, a man named Macbeth meets three witches who sing a song to predict his future.
