William Shakespeare Translating The Bard

Considering that many students of the Bard's work have trouble understanding his words, I have decided to put his words in a more modern context. I'll start with his poems first, then I'll move into the plays.
In the poem translations, I'll post one or two stanzas at a time. With his sonnets, I'll post the entire poem.
In translating the plays, I'll translate each line. Don't worry, I promise to mark the speaker and the play so there is no confusion.
But, before all of that can happen, I'll post several bits of my own on him, his theater, acting in that time, his world, and much more.
